A vision held for three years - and a promise kept. To start a theatre on midsummer's eve 2015. A last-minute change of venue - from Portofino to Broadway. A series of impromptu performances. An opera based on a no smoking sign in City Hall Park. A love story told by two French pensioners, accompanied by a violin and Petula Clark singing Chariot (The song that had played 50 years before when he had asked her to dance in the village square. "He was so tender," she says with her eyes shining.) A dance-off and busk-off with two violinists. And two plays performed with a cast of breakdancers, performing each other's love stories.
