The Manhattan Theatre Club announced (most of) their 2009-2010 season the other day. According to Variety, the season is to include “The Royal Family” (which my mom did in high school), Donald Margulies’ “Collected Stories” and “Time Stands Still” (which ran in L.A. and was reviewed in the New York Times).
The article also states that they’re cutting out a show from their season due to the fact that most theaters aren’t doing well. (It also doesn’t help that “To Be or Not to Be” bombed.)
What makes me scratch my head is why they’re cutting a show off of their off-Broadway season and not their Broadway season. Wouldn’t that ultimately cut costs?
