Doc... your choice of entertainment I would not walk across the street to
see or hear.. You mentioned "Washed Up Entertainers" are you kidding
me some of those you mentioned, many have never heard of... how about
some "Culture" Doc... So far from your posts NONE mentioned.

You mentioned 'Tear it down" Why ?? have you heard it is about to open?

I know you are not serious and really you sound like you have a serious
problem with the Developer in disguise .

As usual, all The Village "experts" postulating before anything actually happens or opens. And by the way, they will also tell us how to run everything.

Very well said - my feelings to a T after reading thru the thread. Seems as if one can open up the most simple thread and -bam- out comes the 'easy from the keyboard' experts. Not sayin' it's bad, simply a given here. And for the novice thread-openers that get slammed along the way -- grin and bear it.

I hope you're right. I just bought a home nearby a couple of weeks ago.

From the "other" site. More information there.


Villagers wont have to wait until April 30s opening night to attend a production at the new Sharon L. Morse Performing Arts Center.

The Villages High School is putting on performances of The King and I at The Sharon on April 16-18.

Tickets are already on sale at the Villages Lifelong Learning College and the cost is $15. The first night (Thursday) of the high school production is considered a dress rehearsal and the second (Friday) is for understudies. The final night (Saturday) will be a full production.

The show will start at 7 p.m.

I'm sorry. I thought that this was supposed to be a forum where we could come on and have discussions and give our opinions about different issues.

I'm usually very positive and a supporter of the developer. In this case I think that they made a mistake. I think that a venue like this should have been larger and in a different location.

Do we want a forum where everyone says only positive things and we all agree on everything? I know that The Villages is a bit of a fantasy land for many of us, but I, for one, wouldn't want it to be a total fantasy.

If there are things that we are concerned about we should be able to express our concern. I don't claim to be an expert or am telling anyone how to run things. I'm simply expressing my opinion. No one complains when people express positive opinions but when someone disagrees with something they are accused of trying to run things.

Maybe I'll be proven wrong in this case. I hope I am, but I doubt it.

I was there on St Patrick's Day this year and all of those lots you mentioned were full. I had to park down near Ace Hardware.

To be fair, most of the lot behind the bowling alley was roped off for performers.

We all have different tastes in entertainment. I'd be surprised if anyone had not heard of some of the people that I had mentioned. My point is that with a 1,000 seat venue we're not going to be able to book acts that are filling 10,000 seat venues.
Not that they would go over here, but we'd never get people at the level of Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend or Taylor Swift. And I'm not suggesting them specifically, I'm just talking about people at that level in entertainment. How about Michael Buble or Adele. Do you think they're going to play a 1,000 seat venue.

Some of the people I mentioned are still filling huge venues even though they've been around for a long time.

As far as culture, I guess to some people that only means classical music and ballet. Do you think that we're going to get the American Ballet Company, or The Bolshoi to perform for 1,000 people? If we did tickets would be $1,000 each. How about the London Symphony Orchestra or the Berlin Philharmonic? We have no chance of getting the top of the classical world with a 1,000 seat venue. The Chamber Orchestra of Europe or the European Youth Orchestra?

And I do believe that I mentioned Andrea Bocelli. Do you think that he's going to play a 1,000 seat venue? Again, maybe if ticket prices are at $1,000 per seat.

How about some Cirque du Soleil shows? I doubt it.

I'd love to see The Trans Siberian Orchestra or Manheim Steamroller at Christmastime.

As someone mentioned, Orlando is an hour away and if we want to see these types of A-list artists, we'll have to keep driving an hour.

And of course I wasn't serious when I said "tear it down". It's here. They built it and we're stuck with it. In my humble opinion they should have built a much larger venue in an area where the infrastructure would be able to handle it.

Opinion's yes. Over and over stating the same thing.....what's the point?

To the posters who think The Sharon is a bad idea.

Please post your resume and a list of you accomplishments so I can fairly compare your opinion to that of the developer.

And by the way, a building permit would not have issued unless it was shown sufficient parking was available.

This is a fantastic opportunity for the high-school students to learn theater production skills too, in a state-of-the-art facility.

I agree, and for The Sharon to do a pre-opening test run!

Default Piano Bar at Sharon Morse! Hope it happens.

It would be truly wonderful if they have a piano bar with stools around the grand piano and some tables around for intimate evenings. Perhaps a trio can play jazz once in a while or a singalong. Kennedy Center in Washington made a set up like that and believe it was or perhaps still is popular.

A wonderful idea!!!

WOW - I don't agree with some of the posters on this thread, in that it hasn't opened yet, and the criticism is rampant.

How about the option of valet parking included with the price of a ticket for those who can't/won't walk to the performance.

Let's see how it is working for a month or so to see if all the problems posed are real or imagined.

I for one don't want to travel to Orlando, unless an event is a must see for me!!! Maybe Tony Bennett with Lady Gaga.

A ridiculous argument. That's like saying that I'm not allowed to have an opinion on the Red Sox third baseman because I can't play any better. Or that I not allowed like a particular piece of music because I couldn't write any better.

We're all entitled to our opinions. We don't have to be qualified in a particular field to offer opinions. How about we ask all the people who think that this is a great idea to send in their resumes to back their opinions.
