This is a pretty big deal to me, so if anyone has any pull, they should take heed. The Papermill Playhouse is a lovely regional that, while never perfect, provided for me a wonderful place as a kid to get exposure to theatre.
They're located in a rather affluent community in New Jersey, which should set off some alarm bells. If this theater, in its location, isn't able to support itself, we're all in big trouble.
