Danny Trejo shares story of prison and redemption with big Canton Palace crowd
CANTON – People lined up both before and after actor Danny Trejo’s appearance Thursday night at the Canton Palace Theatre.
Some fans waited in line beginning as early as 10:30 a.m. to get a front row seat for the 7 p.m. event. Many others had been been standing outside the venue since 3 or 4 p.m.
Some attendees said they just love Trejo. Or they have a favorite movie or role. Others were there for his inspirational message of hope, sobriety and overcoming adversity.
And based on boisterous laughter, beaming smiles and sustained applause, Trejo was well worth the wait. He also likely satisfied all fans by covering an array of subjects, from prison to drugs to education to movies to restaurants.
Trejo’s appearance was part of a joint presentation of the Stark Library and Kent State University at Stark.
