Despite Trend Of Theaters Closing, Arizona Theatre Company Shows Surplus

The number of professional theater companies in Arizona is decreasing, and the state’s largest one, Arizona Theatre Company, is on the verge of some major leadership changes.

One piece of good news is that the company is showing a surplus rather than a deep deficit.

In Sunday’s Arizona Republic, arts writer and theater critic Kerry Lengel looked closely at what’s gone on at the company and what could be next.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
