I heard an interesting (and completely unsubstantiated) rumor yesterday: Disney bought Blue Man Group, and will be shutting down some or all of the local shows.
Has anyone heard anything about this? If so, please post a comment.
I searched the intertubes and couldn't find anything...
Hmm, sounds like something big is going on. I heard from one person inside that they have let a large number of performers go and also seem to be cleaning house in preparation for something big.
In response to my original message posting, Jeffrey Salzberg reported on the Stagecraft Mailing List:
They've laid off 50 people in NY alone and are closing their shops,
according to a friend who (still) works for them.
Something's going on (I know more than I can report), but Bill Sapsis reported on the Stagecraft Mailing List:
I don't know where that thread went but if anyone is still curious, I have
the word from the Blue Man folks in NY that they have NOT been bought by
Disney, nor are there any talks going on. Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zero.
