Studio Arena plans return for Curtain Up!
WBFO's Joyce Kryszak reports this morning that Studio Arena Theatre, under a long-discussed partnership with neighbor Shea's Performing Arts Center, is nearing a reopening. In the WBFO report, Shea's CEO Anthony Conte said the theater hopes to present a show for September's Curtain Up! celebration, and is in talks with the former regional playhouse's stage worker's union. Conte also said he has sought cooperation and advice from local, regional and New York City-based theater companies in his plans to revive Studio Arena as a presenting house.
