Check out these theaters ... so sad.

I'm a sucker for the stage. Even empty, deserted, decaying ones. There's a strange beauty to these places.
Mostly I like the idea of what these places were before they were abandoned. What plays they housed, what performances they sheltered - and also what led them to the state they are in now.
When I look through the photos, I keep picturing in my mind a solitary ghost in greasepaint standing in a faint spotlight, with echos of the past surrounding them, forever playing to an audience that isn't there anymore.
