But off-Broadway, in smaller theaters around New York and across the country, there is still the passion of putting new and classic works on stage at minimal cost and with no price tag for the audience.
Mosher invited five theater stalwarts, four of whom knew Papp personally, to examine how one of the city's most influential public-art heroes had or had not ingrained his ideals into the bedrock of the theater and the city.
Beyond the inspiration and guidance Papp delivered, however, remains the needling concern that theater, particularly New York theater, is growing too expensive for the public's widespread experience and enjoyment, and therefore, "not reflecting the world," said Heilpern.

The majority of the money — $88,000 — would go towards hiring a theater manager to oversee the daily maintenance of the historic performance hall, as well as hiring technical staff for various productions, and who would be responsible for artistic programming.
Since Barnum re-opened two years ago, school officials realized that the theater has been underutilized and there could be a potential to rent it to outside groups, which could bring in new revenue for the district.
But the theater would become self sufficient as operations would provide enough revenue to pay for continued maintenance, ensuring the theater would not fall into disrepair.

Not since the ’20s has there been such a vitriolic, retroactive attack on public stewardship (or support) of anything in the public interest, from hospitals to national forests to Social Security, even when private ownership of public interests proves, again and again, to be criminally inept and corrupt.
America’s professional regional theater movement and the National Endowment for the Arts that came on its heels were born in an era when information about the world arrived through a handful of TV and radio networks and a wide array of independently owned, big-city newspapers that treated theater seriously.
Our local theater is braced for the impact because it’s halfway along a road of survival — not because of some particular clairvoyance on the part of local artists and arts administrators, but because of an accident that occurred some three decades ago.

 Pittsburgh Public Theater director energized for challenge
The Pittsburgh Public Theater yesterday introduced Ted Pappas as its artistic director designate.
Noted mainly as a director of musicals, he'd be a more obvious match for the Civic Light Opera; though an experienced itinerant choreographer and director, he has never run his own theater; and his taste in non-musical drama includes a passion for the Greek classics, which have never been part of the Public's fare.
Although Pappas has never run a theater, the search committee was impressed by his position as president of the Society of Stage Directors and Choreographers -- the national directors' union.
