Broadway makes its fund-raising goal for new seats

The "Creature Comforts" fund-raising drive was pushing 75 percent of its goal going into Friday - and a final anonymous gift put it over the top. The Broadway's landlord has promised to match the $54,000 raised.

New seating will be installed in all six auditoriums at the Broadway, at 111 E. 300 South in Salt Lake City, in the coming weeks. A thank-you reception and screening for donors is being planned for May.

The new seats have high backs, more leg room, and are staggered to ensure nobody's head is in front of you.
