If all goes to plan, the legendary Georgia Theatre will reopen this June, almost two years after a fire completely gutted the historic structure. Owner Wilmot Greene says that while the building will be brand new and state of the art, not everything is changing. “It’s still going to be the same crew, the same spirit, just in a new building,” he said.
Another thing that is staying consistent is The Theatre’s longstanding agreement with TicketBiscuit to provide ticketing services. Greene and CEO Jeff Gale inked a long term, exclusive deal earlier in the spring. “Those guys have stuck with us, helped us out, and they’re a great team,” Greene said, “Plus, they still have the best technology and service in the business, hands down.”
Todd Coder, TicketBiscuit’s Director of Music Business Development, said “Having an icon like the Georgia Theatre as a part of the TicketBiscuit family is something we’re very proud of. We’re excited about their reopening, and are sure they’re about to write a few more chapters of music history there.”
Gale and Coder, who toured The Theatre earlier in the year, were impressed with the new space. “Wil is building a world-class showroom in Athens. The new Theatre is absolutely phenomenal,” Gale said.
The Georgia Theatre is scheduled to open with local acts in June and July, and have a series of Official Grand Opening performances in August. For more information, visit www.georgiatheatre.com.
