Arts advocate gets things done -- with a smile

The Miami Herald

Toby Ansin, founder of the Miami City Ballet and her colleague in so many projects there, says of arts advocate Rhoda Levitt, ''She's a lot of fun. With her, the cup is always half full.''

"Much to my husband's consternation I kept bidding," said Ms. Courts, who has been on the board of the Atlanta Ballet for 20 years.

More power to the risk takers of theatre investment
Leading Article from the Stage

The theatre investor who didn’t know he was taking a risk might have made an appropriate subject for one of the late HM Bateman’s classic cartoons of ingenues cast among more worldly souls, individuals at once believable without being in the least commonplace.
