Madison PAC On The Fiscal Ropes

Madison, Wisconsin’s three-year-old Overture Center for the Performing Arts is in a financial hole, plugging shortfalls with money it won’t be able to replicate in future years. A 29% drop in ticket sales and an over-reliance on those sales to meet budget goals aren’t helping, either. The center is hoping that an aggressive fundraising campaign can keep it from having to ask city or state officials for a bailout.
