Promenade not taking walk

Rumors of sale unfounded

Rumors that the Promenade Theater has been sold to make way for a Sephora store are untrue, according to Ben Sprecher, owner of the Off Broadway venue that is currently home to the John Denver tuner “Almost Heaven.”

Sprecher, also an owner of the Little Shubert as well as a producer (“The Odd Couple”), heard the rumors from people involved in a show that could potentially come into the space, and he wanted to set the record straight.

“I’m 50 years old,” Sprecher said. “I’m not going anywhere.”
