What’s Happening
Starlight Musical Theatre has inspired its devotees to give staggering amounts of money, time and energy in its 65 years. Its recent bankruptcy filing has sent a ripple through the theater’s robust community of benefactors.
What I Found Most Interesting
Even the people who’ve been drawn to give for years to the flailing Balboa Park theater say there’s something elusive about why they’ve been so compelled. Many talked about giving again and again “just to get around that next corner,” but that next corner hasn’t yet come.
What I’m Watching for Next
What will creditors be able to draw from the bankruptcy proceedings? Should Starlight reemerge intact, how will it change its business model?
