New Levitt: Cheers, Thanks, Thrills, and José

By James Lomuscio

Tributes, thanks, tears of joy and standing ovations marked the inaugural season of the new $9 million Levitt Pavilion tonight—and that was before headliner José Feliciano of Weston, donating his performance for free, even took to the stage. Image

The pavilion itself, named after the late Mortimer Levitt and his wife Mimi, who arrived on a golf cart, was the star, reborn after 40 years of providing free, riverfront summer concerts to more than 1.5 million persons.

A total of 1,800 first come, first served free tickets were made available for tonight; however, a much larger number seemed to fill the lawn between the new entryway replete with restrooms, a concession stand and storage and the new pavilion band shell, its cathedral roof looking like a boat’s sail and reminding some of the Sydney Opera House.

Some would-be concert goers had even set up beach chairs on the new walkway that runs along the perimeter of the peninsula in the Saugatuck River on which the Levitt stands.
