It Begins...

"More than three-quarters of nonprofit theaters are being forced to alter their budgets this year because of the worsening economy, a new study found. Theatre Communications Group, an organization that promotes non-profit theater companies, surveyed 210 theaters in January. A full 77% of those polled said they were laying off administrative staff, freezing salaries, cutting travel or discounting tickets to help get through the downturn."

-from Crain's NY Biz.

Still looking for a link to the original TCG report. If anyone out there has it, feel free to post in Comments.

(Or does that mean, they're cutting the discounts?)
