    All things come to those who wait, as Mitchell Frank can attest. Owner of the newly revived Regent Theater in downtown Los Angeles, it took Frank almost 10 years of dreaming about it, acquiring a long-term lease for it in February 2012, then waiting through 19 months of construction before the Regent finally reopened last November as a premier venue in LA’s reemerging downtown music scene. Originally built in the 1920s, the 1,100-capacity venue has been renovated with an eclectic combination of preserved historic architectural details and up to the minute furnishings and amenities – including a HARMAN Professional audio system based around JBL VTX Series line arrays and Crown I-Tech HD Series amplifiers.
