Renovating history at Croswell Opera House

. July 5, 2017.

Michigan’s oldest theater, the Croswell Opera House in downtown Adrian (about 30 minutes south of Ann Arbor in Lenawee County), reopened this spring after a year-long renovation. The upgrades include amenities that make the venue more user-friendly with  aesthetic improvements. Additional restrooms, an elevator and new public spaces inside the building, including a studio theater, were a big part of the reno.

While maintaining its early 20th century architectural elements, the 640-seat space also received a fresh coat of paint and floor refinishing, along with new curtains and carpeting.

This month check out the Tony award-winning musical, In the Heights, written by Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, to catch a glimpse of something stunning in a re-polished jewel.
