Mountain Laurel arts center gets KISS for reopening
By Andrew McGill, OF THE MORNING CALL
Four years after it closed, Mountain Laurel Pocono Mountains Performing Arts Center is making another go at success, scheduling performers it hopes will lure concertgoers to its outdoor amphitheater.
On July 13, the Pike County venue will host glam rockers KISS in its first show since 2007.
It's an all-star start for the troubled venue, which first opened in 2003 amid applause and a torrent of public money but could never stay afloat after several tries.
Now under the guidance of concert veteran David Rodriguez, it has a new tagline: "The music is back in the Pocono Mountains." There will be a KISS ARMY members-only pre-sale. Stay tuned to KISSOnline for details.
After a series of financial issues since opening in 2003, the center's board dissolved itself in March 2008 and handed the property back to its owner, Wolfington Companies.
