Via an email from Scott at Tupelo Music Hall:

I am very pleased to announce to you all that we are opening a new Tupelo Music Hall this Fall in WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, VERMONT!! I’ll tell you more about this next week. What I will tell you now is it’s going to be a carbon copy of the Londonderry venue! Very cool town for a very cool venue.

So in April 2009, Franklin Opera House became the Middle New Hampshire Arts & Entertainment Center. But the idea went well beyond Cookies 101.
