Vancouver Playhouse: RIP

Just learned the news of the Playhouse's shuttering. I've long been a critic of the programming and management of this institution, and after the city's recent rescuing of a portion of the company's debt, the news isn't completely surprising.

Still, it is very very sad. The city needs a resident (preferably repertory) theatre company with a full season to anchor the scene. I guess the Arts Club now fills that mandate. But, ideally, someone else (Blackbird, maybe?) will step in to fill the awful void of a darkened house.
