Twenty years ago Tampa opened a new performing arts center. “Today, TBPAC is one of the country’s most successful presenters, with more than 600, 000 patrons attending nearly 3, 750 events a year. It regularly ranks among the top-grossing venues of its size. But the center had a rocky beginning, going through two chief executives in five years, and accumulating more than a $2-million operating deficit.”
