The Reading List for Wedensday March 7, 2012

Promethean Theatre
It's hard to hear about a theatre closing it's doors for any reason, but to decide to close your doors before you get in over your head has to be one of the hardest things to do.  The Promethean Theatre who uses the black box theatre space at Nova Southeastern University has done just that.  With there donor contributions dwindiling, Promethean is closing not because they have, but beacuse they feel it's time.

“I don’t think of this as a loss. It’s a choice — and we weren’t forced to make this choice. It’s the mature thing to do,” said Deborah L. Sherman, co-founder and producing artistic director. 

There are two things theatrs need to have to keep going: to sell tickets and to have the support from donors and sponsers.  No matter how large a theatre's audiance is, it is hard to keep going with only their support.
