A 100-year-old hotel in downtown St. Petersburg is getting a refreshed look that’s reminiscent of the hotel’s beginnings.
New Hotel Collection Cordova Inn, at 253 2nd Ave. N., has an updated lobby with a Roaring '20s décor. The 32 rooms are getting a makeover and will have the same theme. Walls throughout the hotel will feature photos showcasing St. Petersburg’s history.
The penultimate episode of the early 1960s TV drama Route 66 ends with cynical protagonist Tod Stiles (played by Martin Milner) thrown from the top of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge into Tampa Bay. Will he survive and live happily ever after with his new bride Margo (Barbara Eden)? Cliffhanger!
Two members of the cast of Jobsite Theater’s Hand to God, plus its director, joined us for a freewheeling video conversation about the sexually-charged comedy, onstage at the David A. Straz Center through March 14, and about what coming back to live theater – even on a limited-capacity basis – means to them.
For director David M. Jenkins, who’s also Jobsite’s artistic director, performance is … well, everything.
