Sad News from a Theatre Company

Tuesday, February 10, 2009 Leave a Comment

Though I never got out to Brooklyn to see a show at Tuckaberry Productions, I know a number of their regular artists and they seemed like genuinely good people, bringing quality childrens theatre to an under-served community. With all the big theatres making big splashes with their big financial woes, the email announcement of Tuckaberry's less heralded ending makes me remember just how fragile a species each theatre company is - like rare amphibians where the slightest change in the water can stop us before we are able to breathe the air. The ending of a theatre company, however small, always gives me that strange sense of loss that reading about endgangered languages does - like some unique way of saying the world is gone.
Anyway, best wishes to the artists and audience of Tuckaberry.
