Episode 198. Merrimack Repertory Theatre

Published by austin on

“Small but excellent” is the rallying cry for Merrimack Repertory Theatre in Lowell, MA where we recently premiered The Complete World of Sports (abridged). Artistic Director Charles Towers and Executive Director Tom Parrish talk about the creative and business decisions that led MRT to retire significant debt, flourish creatively, and run in the black for five years in a very tough economy. Featuring tips on institutional stabilization, the luxury of dedicated subscribers, a special appearance by Matt Walker, Artistic Director of the Troubador Theatre Company, and the value of self-policing.
