Where's my Theatre?

Here he goes again.

Brian “Where’s my Theatre” Rudman is calling for…….yes you guessed it…..the council to buy him a theatre.

In a perverse sort of way, I’m glad Auckland City councillors are going ahead with a daft plan to build a $1.65 million giant screen in Aotea Square in time for the Rugby World Cup. It means they won’t be able to cry poor when I suggest that for not much more, they could buy the wonderful old Mercury Theatre, which has just gone on the market.

Hey Brian, here’s a thought, raise the money yourself from all? your chardonnay socialist art loving friends rather than picking the pockets of the ratepayers. It is all very well to love the theatre when someone else is paying but asking them to dip into their own pockets usually meets with cries of poverty.
