This one made the newspaper. I could not have taken it without the IS anti shake of the E-3, the 50-200 lens, or the very decent high ISO performance of the camera.

It's a very good show of the capacity of the Zuiko 50-200, I have it and I'm very happy.
Yes, it is noisy, but seems you used LR very well I would like to know the settings you made for this photograph in LR, if you don't mind. It's a heavy weight we OLY users have to carry and It could be good if we share a little of this info.
The point of view had to be more centered I think, to improve notably this shot even I understand you couldn't move freely at the theater.
BTW it is not an easy shot and we have to value it.
Regards, Salvador.

noise reduction

this session was in fact the very first real-life test of my then brand new E-3 and the image was used the next day in a local newspaper. LR did not offer any noise reduction back so I used "Noise Ninja". That program rather aggressively "ironed" out noise and it took some time to get the settings just right. I no longer use it and didn't note down the settings, I am afraid. Btw. unfortunately my E-3 died last year. I enjoyed it very much but have since switched to a full frame system. I miss the compactness of the 4/3rds format, but no longer have any noise issues.
Best regards, Johannes
