Her Maj was meant to relaunch tonight, but the premiere of Six The Musical has obviously been nixed by the pandemic.

Instead, the media has been given a walk through, and it looks great:

https://glamadelaide.com.au/first-look- ... velopment/

Can't wait to see a show here, and grateful Adelaide will finally be able to stage more of the big ones.
My only gripe with this redevelopment is that they haven't done any kind of restoration of the facade, so the paintwork is what it was before and in daylight it kind of brings down the whole new look. The footpath out the front is pretty average too, mostly bitumen, hopefully the council have plans to rectify this.
The colour suits, IMO.

It's not the colour, the colour is fine, it's the fact that the facade is a). in person it looks quite dirty from the construction works, and b). the paintwork for the formwork features on the facade have faded from having not been touched up in years. Circled examples below, remember that the sign was once a dark red, and the other ornamental bits were a darkish green.
