NIght at the Theatah

Went to see "A Raisin in the Sun" at the Trinity Rep Theater. Beautiful gleaming exterior of white terra cotta, built in 1917 as the Emery Majestic. In the 70's the interior was torn out and several blackish box spaces put in. Today it supports a thriving repertory company and injects nightlife into Downcity. Before and after the show, we imbibed and irrigated ourselves at Tini, a 20 seat tiny martini and small plates. The Tini Weenie was particularly good and an appropriate homage to both the size and provenance of the space, having been the longtime kennel for a New York Weiner System joint called the New Yorker (a peculiar Providence tradition of a small coney with chili).
