These little protein spikes wreak havoc when they attach to lung tissue and hijack otherwise healthy tissue into building a potentially lethal coronavirus army of invaders. CLICK TO CONTINUE

The Leader of the Free World Gives a Speech, and She Nails It

Angela Merkel doesn’t do drama and she doesn’t give speeches on TV. So the mere fact that the German chancellor faced the camera across a desk and spoke to the nation Wednesday evening made the gravity of the situation clear. “Es ist ernst,” she said—“This is serious”— and those three bland words had more power than a hellfire sermon. Then she pivoted from statement to plea: “Take it seriously.” Quickly, she moved on to historical context, the reason for her unprecedented impromptu appearance: “Since German unification—no, since the Second World War—no challenge to our nation has ever demanded such a degree of common and united action.”  CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE

A Message from Steve Lloyd – To all of our patrons, volunteers, actors, directors and supporters

The past two weeks have been very difficult for us all.  Exactly two weeks ago we had a finance committee meeting and I was asked what would be the worst case scenario of this health crisis.  My answer seemed impossible but I replied that we would shut down, everyone would be laid off, including me, the theater would be moth balled and we would hope to preserve as much of our capital as possible so we would have the ability to reopen when the time came.
