A little more than a month after announcing that it was canceling the 2013-14 season, Theater of the Stars announced this week that is was closing for good.
The decision, made in the face of a troubled economy that resulted in underperforming seasons for the past several years, comes after bringing the best of Broadway to Atlanta for more than six decades.
Action steps are in the works to liquidate and wind down the Midtown-based organization. Subscriber’s refunds will be an important part of the closing process as the company pays off debts as quickly and efficiently as it is able.
“We’ve had a great run,” Theater of the Stars Vice President, Brian D. Frey said in a statement. “We could not be more grateful to our many patrons and supporters who have been a part of our family over the years. We hate to say ‘goodbye.’ It was a very difficult decision for all involved.”
With the ending of Theater of the Stars, the for-profit Broadway in Atlanta now is the only company currently slated to bring Broadway shows to the Fox Theatre. Single tickets for its “The Book of Mormon” (Jan. 28-Feb. 9, 2014) go on sale on Sept. 22.
