Seeing these posts has not only reduced my IQ by five, but led me to think: why can't we have more in house productions at the stanley? As in, auditioned, rehearsed, and performed there? I know many who'd claw for more opportunities to be on stage, and many more who'd pay to see things like Les mis, the music man, little shop of horrors and the like performed live.

with donna donovan on the board, it's easy to see why it's down the drain-just like she sunk the paper, she finished off the stanley. she was so 'essential' at the od that they never replaced her after she 'retired'....she was undoubtedly asked to leave or take a transfer or a demotion. good riddance in any case to a fat, bald, ugly hate monger.
So true.

The stage is unionized so if anyone wants to perform on it they have to pay the union to do so. The Broadway Theater League actually has nothing to do with the Stanley they just rent the facility for space. For everyone that wanted a big act....they can't afford the start up money and no bank will loan out to them because they are so deeply in debt. The pricing is done by the Executive Director so if prices are high there is one person to blame. The issue is no one truly cares about the success of the facility as much as sticking their name on something pretty.
