Theater Arts & The Economy
When economic times are tough, people try to curb their spending wherever they can. Often the entertainment budget is the first to be pared down – leaving theater groups with more empty seats, and performers, directors, and crews with less work. Recent debate over arts funding in the stimulus package has people talking about what value and importance we place on the arts. Join us this Friday as we look at how theater is faring nationwide, and how local theater companies and venues of differing sizes are weathering the economic crisis.
