Orpheum President Pat Halloran was on the Drake and Zeke radio program last Friday to discuss the upcoming Broadway season.
About the 7:28 mark, Zeke has an anecdote about his experience taking the kids to Scooby Doo at The Orpheum a few years ago. Hilarious...
Also, Tom Jones to the Orpheum? 8:05 mark

Pat also notes that Paulo Szot, the actor who plays Emile de Becque in South Pacific on Broadway will be part of the touring production that comes to the Orpheum March 23-28, 2010. Szot won the 2008 Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical for this role. He is also an internationally acclaimed Opera singer.
