I was thrilled to read Jim Kershner’s April 18 story about the situation at Spokane’s only professional resident theater. The loss of this venue would be devastating to our arts community, especially since it’s avoidable.
Granted, past leadership of the theater had its ups and downs, but the current team has been doing wonderful things: renovations, varied presentations (plays, music and lectures) and community outreach. The sins of the previous organization leaders should not be laid on the shoulders of the current.
And to quote my 10-year-old son: “They can’t close! It’s a great theater!”
Let’s get involved, Spokane, and help this vital piece of our arts scene remain active, influential and productive.
