Admit It, As Sad As You Are To See The Colonial Theatre Go, You Want To Be The One To Click The Detonator


Admit it.

As upset as you are to see the Colonial Theatre go, it would be kinda cool to be the one who gets to bring it down when the decision to put something else there is inevitably made.

Yeah sure, you’re upset about the unknown fate of Emerson’s Colonial Theatre. Who isn’t? You care just as much as the next person when it comes to preserving the remarkable history of the facility. The performing arts are important in this city. No arguments here!

But c’mon… admit that just for one second, you thought about being the one, when the moment came, to click the button from a safe distance and destroy this thing that’s been around since the turn of the 20th Century.

The Boston Globe’s article regarding the fate of this Boston landmark left you feeling a little disappointed. That’s totally understandable!

But I think I speak for everybody when I say that I wouldn’t blink at the chance to throw on a hard hat and send that sucker to kingdom come.

Again, it’s not what any of us want, but still. Picture a ceremonial countdown where you are given the nod from a construction worker or contractor to press down on a trigger that sets off TNT or C4 (you’re not too picky), bringing down the whole infrastructure in one fell swoop.

I mean if we’re getting rid of the Colonial Theatre, somebody will be handed the keys to a heavy duty crane and send a wrecking ball flying through it.

Why can’t it be you?
