ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – The Muny experienced a packed house Monday night with the help of Mother Nature. People showed up with jeans, long sleeve tee shirts and brought blankets. Temperatures dipped down in the 50's and over 9-thousand people took advantage of a night under the stars.

The Muny just installed 750-thousand dollars in cooling fans but there was no need to turn them on. Musical lovers started lining up for free seats at 4:00 pm.

    A bit deceptive because MUNY draws very well every night, though limited to the 7 hottest weeks of the year to protect ‘pretenders’. What attendance conforms is MUNY should open in May and operate well into September, especially over the Labor Day weekend and not be cut off early in August. The unrelenting restraint-of-trade of MUNY and Kiel to protect pretenders, which has gone on for 3 decades has done more to reduce St. Louis as a City than all the phoney reasons given for its failures. It causes huge losses in travel for entertainment and it violates federal law.

    MUNY attendance, meaning the paid attendance, is not due to the cooler summer weather. It is nearly filled on the hottest nights. Sometime show is an aerial view of the full crowd, which the Post-Dispatch is not permitted to do.
