Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren announced last week that the city's prime Parcel 5 will become a performing arts center, owned and operated by the Rochester Broadway Theater League. This has been a dream more than two decades in the making for RBTL's Arnie Rothschild, who joins us for the hour.

But does this project have the funding? Where will the money come from? Can RBTL guarantee that taxpayers won't be on the hook to subsidize it? What happens to the Auditorium Theater? We examine all of that and more.
