Richmond Triangle Players has purchased its venue and re-named the building the Robert B. Moss Theatre.  Moss is the real estate entrepreneur who located the building and provided the naming gift.

 

Moss is a Richmond native and a top producing realtor with Long & Foster Christie’s International Real Estate.  He was inspired by a presentation he saw at Triangle Players’ 15th Anniversary Celebration, when they were still performing on the 3rd floor of Fielden’s nightclub. “It wasn’t even a week later that Robb came to us with an idea for a building that could be renovated into the kind of theater we needed,” said Philip Crosby, Executive Director of RTP. “He not only located the theater, but bought it for us!”

 

“I’m thrilled to be a part of making this happen,” said Moss. “Finding a home for RTP and enriching the cultural arts for the Richmond community makes this honor even more special.”

 

“Back then, there was no way any bank would have given RTP a mortgage on that property,” echoed RTP Board President Julia Flenner.  “Robb put his reputation – not to mention his credit score — on the line for RTP, because he believed in us and what we were doing. Sometimes an angel arrives at just the right time.”

 

The re-dedication took place at the theatre on 4/26 with entertainment provided by Chris Hester (an Artsie winner for the title role in RTP’s production of The Boy from Oz) and jazz chanteuse Emme St. James and Her Jazz Gentlemen.
