The new and improved stage lighting at the New Daisy Theater
The balcony at the New Daisy has undergone major renovations, changing the second-level seating area into a VIP experience known as the Big Star Room. The unveiling of the Big Star Room is part of the Grand Opening weekend that starts on Friday (October 16th) for the New Daisy, and the room will be located on the second and third floors of the theater. According to a recent press release:
“Guests can enjoy multiple lounges: the ’70s inspired Projection Room, which, true to its name, was the actual projection room for 1940s movie house; the Library Lounge, which serves as the perfect place to get away from the live action; and the 75-seat Mezzanine, designed for prime viewing.”
Access to the Big Star Room is by membership only, and members will have private servers, in addition to a concierge for ticket reservations. A portion of all Big Star Room membership proceeds will go to the Musicians Healthcare Organization. Jody Stephens, original member of Big Star and Ardent CEO, has been involved with the curating of the Big Star Room since its formation.
“The New Daisy is vital to the music scene of downtown Memphis, which is swiftly becoming a cosmopolitan cultural hub. I’m happy to be a part of integrating a genuine emblem of our historic city with the inevitable waves of the future. And guests might as well get some perks while they’re at it,” Stephens says.
The first chance to check out the Big Star Room is this Friday, but the New Daisy will be celebrating its “Grand Opening Weekend” all weekend long.
