Anyone remember when Omaha had 3 Equity theatres?

Back in the mid-1970's there were three Equity dinner theatres - Westroads (in the lower level of the mall), Firehouse (in the Old Market) and Talk of the Town (84th & Center - it's now a shriner's lodge).

My parents ran the Westroads theatre from 1974 to 1976.
