Family obligations kept me away from the official groundbreaking at the Kessler Theater in Oak Cliff, about which we first told you in early May
. But something tells me the shindig, attended by Mayor Tom Leppert, will be well documented. Jeff Liles's TheKessler2010 YouTube page
features, for now, this delightful Emily Elbert performance
recorded yesterday; he'll send word when further video's been uploaded. Paul Quigg shot the shindig with his still camera; so too did Barry Kooda, who was kind enough to allow us to run this shovel-ready photo of the mayor, theater owner Edwin Cabaniss (in the white shirt) and others digging in for a long, hot summer of renovation.
