Atlanta Black Theatre Closes

A week before its scheduled opening, the New Jomandi theatre in Atlanta announced that it was canceling its entire 25th anniversary season. “Saying it had been unable to raise enough money for its four-show 2003-2004 program, the theater said it would spend the year in ‘redevelopment,’ then start up again in 2004. Since 2000, Jomandi, one of the few remaining major black theaters in the country, has suffered financial difficulties, canceled shows, and changed its name.”
