The Cap Comes Back. Port Chester’s Newly Refurbished Capitol Theatre is both a technological wonder and a “Queen of a Rock Palace.” By Lorraine Gengo. Most music lovers from around Fairfield County have a seminal memory of a favorite performer playing The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester  –  “The Cap,” as it’s called by its many fans. For me, it was seeing Bonnie Raitt perform an amazing show on my 20th birthday in 1976, a moment made bittersweet by the ending of a best friendship that very same night. NYC-based concert promoter Peter Shapiro booked Bob Dylan at The Capitol this past September, inaugurating a new era for the famed venue. Reportedly, Shapiro’s first Capitol concert was the jam band Strangefolk in the late 1990s, right before the theatre ceased hosting major concerts. Now, he holds a long-term lease on the building and, after a $2 million renovation, The Cap is ready to rock the new millennium. Shapiro, owner of Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg and publisher of Relix magazine, in collaboration with The Bowery Presents, has already booked an impressive array of acts into spring of 2013, including Steve Miller Band, Little Feat and Leon Russell, Trey Anastasio Band, Yo Gabba Gabba, Citizen Cope, and B.B. King.
