Cherry 7-Up Comeback Looking Doubtful

One of the images on the Bringing Back Broadway website shows a view that includes the Cameo Theatre and its rooftop ad. Those who have been around Downtown for a few years remember this as the site of a Cherry 7-Up ad that was promoting the coolness of pink for roughly two decades (pictured after the jump). The current billboard for the exhibit Ashes and Snow has been out of date for a year and a half now, prompting me to ask last January whether Ashes and Snow was the new Cherry 7-Up.

While I can't quite make out what the mocked-in billboard is promoting, the other signs on the Bringing Back Broadway renders are for stage shows. I'd suspect this one to be the same.

On a more serious note, the Cameo looks amazing in that render.
