I received the following e-mail from the League of Independent Theater. If you're free tonight, you should attend.

Dear Friends of LIT,

There is an important event happening tomorrow and we are calling on all the friends of Independent Theater to come and raise your voices in support of a new tax credit initiative that has been spearheaded by David Pincus and the Workshop Theater. The basic idea of the proposal is for landlords to give non-profit cultural institutions below market rates on real estate in exchange for tax credits and other incentives from the City. This could have a great effect on keeping the theaters we work in viable. So please come out tomorrow - Wednesday 6:30pm 119 Ninth Avenue (between 17th and 18th Streets) - and show your support.

This Wednesday, February 3rd, at the Fulton Center Auditorium, 119 Ninth Avenue (between 17th and 18th Streets), Manhattan Community Board 4 is going to consider a letter written by its Theater Task Force for passage.

At 6:30, on that evening, members of the public are invited to sign-up for a public session at which they will be given two minutes to speak on any topic that interests them.

Any member of the public, who resides or works (or performs) within the confines of Community District 4, 14th Street to 59th, 8th Avenue to the Hudson River, is invited to attend.

If you are a theater artist, who supports the tax credit initiative that the unprecedented alliance of Community Board Arts related committees are developing, we need your support at that meeting.
