Theater By The Book Succumbs to the Recession

This is the text of the email sent out by Theater By The Book's Artistic Director, Rafael De Acha:

Dear Friends of Theater by the Book,Rafael de Acha

This will be the last email you will be receiving from Theater by the Book.

Regretfully, we are indefinitely suspending operations. The state of the economy makes it all but impossible for TBTB to continue to present its free-admission readings of classic plays while retaining the services of professional actors who must be compensated for their work. Grants and contributions are bottoming out due to the economic strains we are all experiencing. Without these we can not continue to operate.

I thank all of you for your past support and wish each and every one of you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2009.


Rafael de Acha, Artistic Director
