A Much Loved Director Talks About Saying Goodbye

The challenge between attracting audience, maintaining artistic integrity, and meeting a bottom line. It’s not the North Shore Music Theatre. You can’t just do ‘ The Music Man ‘ with Shirley Jones in the round. I think it’s a very tough row to hoe.”
