Catalyst cancels shows
Catalyst - Catalyst Acting Company is canceling the remaining shows of its 2007-08 season: La Cage aux Folles and Lonestar/Laundry and Bourbon. The board of directors had previously canceled their production of Mere Mortals in January. Jeff Shields, president of the board of directors, indicated they are "reorganizing, regrouping and restructuring" and plan to be ready with an aggressive second season next year. Shields said it was "more important to focus on getting the 2008-2009 season finalized and secured financially than trying to rush a big project like La Cage." Shields also noted that they'd make an announcement in a few days that would include "a few things for next season that I think people will be quite excited by."
