Abstract

"Cover Story" piece on the future of Portland's theater community. There are some who insist this is a period of rebirth for Portland theater. But the theater community is still reeling from the loss of the Oak Street Theatre, which closed last summer. The three small companies that used the facility, Mad Horse Theatre Company, Flaming Productions and Acorn Productions, are now homeless. And Portland Stage Company, the city's most established and only Equity theater, almost became homeless, and is still running a significant annual operating deficit. But The Children's Theatre of Maine has recently moved into its own space, and two new theater companies, Fly By Night Productions and Tekkanis Productions, are using a local nightclub for shows, though space is very limited. Mike Levine of Acorn Productions said people are thinking more project-to-project with less long-term season planning.
