Expansions are only successful if the heart of the enterprise remains unchanged -- which is why despite the addition of California Adventure Park, Disneyland still retains its jolly bankrupting spirit. Getting bigger while staying true, Largo at the Coronet
You may know Largo as the small, dinner-theater-style home for a steady lineup of up-and-comers -- most of whom up and came, necessitating the larger Coronet: a 40s-era theater that saw both Steve Martin's early standup and "Puppetry of the Penis" (based on not standing up). The new venue's still relatively intimate (280 seats), with a "quality over quantity" sound system specially designed by Jon Brion -- the 5-tool musician who's worked with everyone from the incomparable Rufus Wainwright to the comparable Kanye West. The first month's bookings are a who's-who of longtime regulars: Colin Hay (of Men at Work fame), Aimee Mann, Grant Lee Phillips, and Brion, plus comics like Greg Proops, Patton Oswalt, and Sarah Silverman -- who'll likely open her act with a song called "I'm f*cking Colin Hay (of Men at Work fame)"
There's no booze yet in the main theater (the updated lobby does have coffee/pastries), but right next door Largo's planning to open a tiny beer/wine-serving concert venue -- but not liquor, because this is happening in Tomorrowland, not Fantasyland.
