Cleveland calling all advocates of the arts

Carolyn Jack, Cleveland Plain Dealer

What if Cleveland held an arts meeting and the mayor came?

That novel scenario might come to pass on May 15, when an "Artists' Summit and Exhibit" instigated by City Councilman Joe Cimperman is to take place at City Hall under council auspices.

The mayor shows her support (I wonder if she'll come to SF):

Mayor stands up for the arts by sitting

Steven Litt, Cleveland Plain Dealer

In her eagerness to show support for the arts, Cleveland Mayor Jane Campbell is literally putting her face on the line.

This Friday, Campbell will pose for a portrait by Cleveland artist Shirley Aley Campbell (no relation) at the Beck Center for the Arts, Lakewood. The artistic outcome of "Campbell by Campbell" will be auctioned immediately after the session.

World-class ballet struggles in Cleveland market

by WILMA SALISBURY
the Cleveland Plain Dealer

The cost of ballet tickets here is modest in comparison to prices in other cities, Yet, box-office revenues have fallen below expectations this season. Miami City Ballet filled only 25 percent of the house for its outstanding repertory program last fall. Pennsylvania Ballet drew 11,400 patrons to "The Nutcracker," a drop of 4,000 from the preceding year.

"We know that there is a market for world-class ballet in Northern Ohio," said Playhouse Square President Art Falco. "But we do not know how large it is. We are trying to grow the audience."

"We don't Know how large it is"??????

WHAT????? :shock:

Art Falco and Playhouse Square knows perfectly well how large the World Class Ballet audience is in Cleveland and I am sure he has watched it dwindle in the last 5 years since the demise of CSJB. The thing about Cleveburg is that the community LOVES to support things that are native to Cleveland, they really pride themselves on it. Or atleast that was the case when I lived there. For the last 5 years the dance scene in Cleveland has been that of outside companies coming in to perform. Granted there are a few local organizations doing there thing but generally speaking, the majority of performances have been that of touring dance companies. It is no surprise at all that the audience numbers have fallen.

Sad, truly sad.

Public Theatre cuts budget, tries to end money-losing ways
by TONY BROWN for the Cleveland Plain Dealer

Cleveland Public Theatre, the city's lead ing alternative theater in the slowly gen trifying Near West neighborhood of De troit-Shoreway, had a tough time at the box office last season.

Despite several critical and popular successes, including Cleveland Heights writer Sarah Morton's "4 Minutes to Happy," the DanceWorks Series and the annual visit to Cleveland of drag-act extraordinaire Varla Jean Merman, the company finished the season with $125,000 in new debts.

Endangered dance: Companies struggle for patrons, solvency
by WILMA SALISBURY for the Cleveland Plain Dealer

Is dance dying at Playhouse Square? Are the graceful ballerinas of "Swan Lake" gone for good? Is the resident ballet a thing of the past?

These troubling questions arise following the termination of the Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital Ballet Series and the cancellation of Ohio Ballet's winter and spring seasons at Playhouse Square. Such losses are devastating to a community that has not yet fully recovered from the demise of Cleveland San Jose Ballet six years ago.
