The Atlanta-based gay-favorite theater, named this year’s Best Theater by GA Voice readers, faced dire financial straits in February when openly gay artistic director Freddie Ashley put out a “life or death” plea to raise $200,000 to keep the theater open.

In April, the theater’s board chair sent out a letter saying the theater had raised $50,000 but still had a far way to go to ensure the theater ― which has produced such hits as “Judas Kiss” and “Xanadu” — remains open.
