Esteemed theater suspends plays, lays off staff
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — One of the nation's largest African-American professional theaters says it's suspending programming and laying off some staff as it deals with a revenue shortage.
Penumbra Theatre, based in St. Paul, says it has "an immediate cash flow challenge," and will lay off six of its 16 full-time employees in order to trim $800,000 from its $2.7 million budget.
