OT- Salt Lake City


August 6th, 2008, 12:47 am #1

This is WAY off topic but you all are sooo resourceful- My husband got a job offer in Salt Lake City. Does anyone know about theater, etc there? I got online and saw that there are performing arts schools and great ballet academies. I also saw what I believe was a regional theater but I'm not sure. Does anyone knows of a good area to live in, also? He would work in North Salt Lake.
