Kate Taylor - Globe & Mail, 09/13/01:<BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>NAC's action plan something to cheer about</B><P>Perhaps the turning point came in 1999 after Ottawa's National Arts Centre revealed that a $1-million gift from hockey player Alexei Yashin was in part a scheme to pay money to his parents. It was only the latest scandal at the performing-arts centre, founded in a wave of centennial-year optimism and housing, in its heyday in the seventies, an orchestra, French and English theatre companies, a dance series and a summer opera festival. In the eighties and nineties, there had been two musicians' strikes, budget cuts that shut down the resident theatre companies and the opera festival while still leaving crippling deficits, and a parade of briefly lived executive directors. And then there were the harebrained schemes to turn the centre either into a giant TV studio beaming its performances across the country or into a roadhouse for commercial producers. Could anything else go wrong?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><BR>To read more search <B>Kate Taylor</B> on the <A HREF="http://www.globeandmail.com" TARGET=_blank>Globe & Mail's</A> 7 Day Search<P><BR> <P><BR><p>[This message has been edited by Marie (edited September 14, 2001).]
