We attended the "Live and Let Die Tour" at the Grand Theater. Great venue, friendly volunteer staff, very good bar service. Drinks are a bit pricy. The entertainment was very good. Should be a great year for The Grand with their selection of shows.

Wausau is fortunate to have this lovely, historical venue for theater and music. The Grand Hall compliments the facility and expands its use. It is wonderful to see enthusiastic support for the Arts in Central Wisconsin.

There is no such statue at Grand Theater that I know of. You are either joking or have a different city in mind
