Facing Cash Crisis, America's Largest Black Theater Company Suspends Programming
"Penumbra Theatre, the nation's largest and most esteemed African-American theater, is suspending its programming and will offer no plays this year. Citing what it called 'an immediate cash-flow challenge,' the St. Paul-based company said it has laid off six of its 16 full-time employees, including associate artistic director Dominic Taylor, to help trim $800,000 from its $2.7 million budget."
