Magic Theatre and North Shore Music Theatre Now Facing Extinction

I discovered 55 articles on google about North Shore Music Theatre's immiment demise, but here is the Times' coverage.

And here is the Playbill story on the Magic Theatre in San Francisco, which needs $600,000 or it will close.

Peeps, listen. Saving Shakespeare Santa Cruz, which was miraculous, isn't enough.

Here's North Shore's website.

Here's the Magic's website, which has this copy on it:

San Francisco's nationally acclaimed new plays theatre, Magic Theatre, is on the brink of shutting its doors. Now in the midst of a staff shutdown, Magic may be forced to cancel the remainder of its season and close for good. To keep our doors open we must raise $350,000 by January 9, 2009.

So, peeps, get up and do something. You think this is it? That everything is hunky dory and we should just focus on positive news? Get real, peeps. There's a crisis. Get up and do something.

Both would be unfortunate if they closed, but the Magic particularly tragic--few theatres have done more for new plays in America.
