New Vista Formally Closed

Reported first on the Conundrum Stage blog, and then by the Drama Queen, New Vista Theatre has announced that it has ceased operations.

From Drama Queen:
Hoffman and his colleagues, Peter Librach and Shari Klages, thanked both the theater professionals and donors who tried to help save New Vista but added, "The financial support we have received has been highly appreciated, but insufficient to carry us through these difficult economic times."

The artists involved in New Vista will continue working elsewhere -- Hoffman will be in a show at GableStage later this season -- but unfortunately, Palm Beach County now has one less professional theater company.
From Conundrum Stages:
I personally want to thank New Vista for circulating the South Florida Theatre talent pool by mixing in veteran performers and rising stars. Here's hoping there will be another company like them to come along.
The Theatre Scene also extends best wishes to the team behind New Vista; we have lost a venue, but not your voices.  We'll be looking for you on area stages in the near future.
