"State of the Arts" piece noting the good news and the bad on the Maine theater
"State of the Arts" piece noting the good news and the bad on the Maine theater scene. The Portland Stage Company, which is winding up another successful season, has just been awarded a $100,000 grant from the National Theatre Artists Residency Program that will fund a two-year residency culminating in the creation of two perfomance works by playwright Shelley Berc, a professor of playwriting at the University of Iowa. Oak Street Theatre in Portland is about to lose its space, because building owner Penny Carson has found another tenant. This month, the University of Southern Maine will send Alexandra Munier of Augusta to Washington for the finals of the American College Theater Festival at the Kennedy Center. Her costume designs for Little Red Fish and the Shoes of Gold took top honors at the New England regional competition. The Portland Museum of Art has appointed Carrie Haslett to be the new Joan Whitney Payson Curator of Modern Art. Haslett worked as Payson's research assistant from 1994-1996.
