Barrymore campaigns for new chairs

Atwood-Barrymore Corp., owner of the 88-year-old Barrymore Theatre in Madison, has launched a Bottom To Top Chair-ity Appeal asking the public to help it raise $200,000 to replace the music and entertainment venue’s 50-year-old seats.

The Barrymore on Atwood Avenue hosts hundreds of live concerts every year and the goal is to replace the seats by the start of the fall 2018 season.

More renovations may come as the theatre approaches its 100th anniversary.
