Stages Theatre Finds A New Stage
Stages Theatre is moving to a temporary new home thanks to Hurricane Ike.
The facility's Yeager Theatre suffered water damage and lost power during the storm; it had been hosting the world premiere of the musical Unbeatable. And, of course, Always...Patsy Cline (a/k/a The Cash Cow) is also running.
The productions will move to Zilkha Hall in the hobby Center for the next two weeks, when hopefully power is restored and the damage repaired to Stages.
Kenn McLaughlin, Stages' artistic director, had this to say:
The Hobby Center's generosity may be our saving grace this season. Not only did we stand to lose an enormous amount of revenue, we wanted as many people as possible to see the premiere of the musical Unbeatable, which is an inspiration not just to those touched by breast cancer, but to anyone with a heart.

Zilkha Hall is bigger than Stages, so there we assume plenty of good seats are available.
