The Playhouse (1990-1997) was a live music hot spot located at 7407-09 Madison, which featured performances by local bands,  motown, rock n roll, jazz, reggae and local jam sessions.  The Playhouse was owned and operated by Robert Marani, a popular Chamber member and entrepreneur.   In January 1998 Robert Marani decided to focus more on the dining side of his business and created a new restaurant, Tutto Tapas.  Marani ran the restaurant for two years before selling it to Francesca’s.  Francesca’s Fiore, which opened in 2001, has been serving simple rustic Italian food in town ever since.
