Show Support for the Ohio Theatre. I Did.

You've probably heard about this already, but this is important so I'm posting it here anyway.

It looks like the Ohio Theatre, home of Soho Think Tank and the Ice Factory, and one of the theatres in Manhattan with the very best energies and vibes, may not be closing down right away after all. (If that's not Good News, what is?)

They're asking their supporters to donate a dollar to demonstrate the commitment that our theatre community has to keeping this extraordinary institution alive.

I just did it. (I gave $1.04, so that the Ohio doesn't have to pay the administrative fee.) It took about 3 minutes.

Here's what came in the email:
It's Official!

The Ohio Theatre WILL continue through June 2009. (Maybe longer...Click here for The New York Times article)

Thank you, everyone, for your many calls and emails. Many of you have asked: What can I do to help?

This is our fundraising drive from now until Valentine's Day.

But instead of focusing on "how much" we raise, we're trying to establish "how many." As in: "How many people love the Ohio Theatre and care about its future?"

Please donate One Dollar as a symbolic gesture of your love. This is our first step in trying to quantify the expressions of loss, sympathy, and support we've received in the last month from artists and audience members, as we try to secure a long term future for the Ohio Theatre.

Click here to "quantify your love"!

Please, feel free to forward this to any Ohio Theatre Lovers you know.

Ohio Theatre, 66 Wooster Street, New York City, NY 10012
