Renovation fever has once more come to Houston as yet another building succumbs to temptation, this time the Main Street theater. The much needed renovation is actually the second attempt at restoring the aging construction, this time being spearheaded by Justin O'Brien and Dean O'Kelley who have raised an impressive sum to breathe life back into the building.

How do you solve a problem like Main Street's theater? Doing what this coterie of entertainment professionals does best: Charming their way into the wallets of art-loving consumers.

Leave it to the quick-witted Steve Garfinkel to transcribe the tunes of The Sound of Music into ditty centered on a priceless appeal for funds. A captive audience at Main Street Theater's capital campaign kickoff Monday evening no doubt understood how the antiquated Rice Village building on Times Boulevard hindered the growth of the 38-year-old performing arts company.
