Auckland has some glaring deficiencies in the live theatre department.
Mercury Theatre is for sale.
Any aspiring Auckland Super City mayors able to join up these dots.
Or will the vibrant city chitter chatter turn out to be hot air after all.
Or worse will the picky theatre crew feel shy about being on K'Road and miss the chance of our lifetime.
Mercury is where it all began.
It could be where it all kick starts accessible live theatre again.
Or will Auckland's propensity for ditz and fluff aim another shot at its cultural foot.
Grab this chance people
