Rest in Peace, Tony

I was sad to see that the founder of Drury Lane Theater, Tony De Santis, died yesterday of natural causes at age 93. He was running his shows almost until the end. I didn't know him, but my father worked for him in the 70s, and he always said Tony was a class act.

Why is this relevant in a blog about Chicago real estate? Take a look at the Drury Lane locations, past and present. Primo real estate. The original Drury Lane/Martinque was turned into a retail center a few years ago. I understand he had many other investments of this nature and may have made more money in dirt than under the lights.

God bless him.
