Today, March 12, marks one year since I received the call from CATCO’s Board Chair, Krista Hazen, around lunch time, offering me the newly created position of Executive Director. I enthusiastically accepted! Later that afternoon, I received a call from Steven Anderson, CATCO’s retiring Producing Director, congratulating me on the opportunity. We chatted for a few minutes, and then he said, “I guess I should tell you … we’re likely closing the theatres after tonight’s performance.” And, indeed, by Friday, March 13, 2020, the Riffe Center theatres, along with all the other arts and cultural venues in Columbus, officially closed. Initially, we thought the closures might last a few weeks. We’d simply shift programming forward, with the goal of getting all planned productions completed by the end of our fiscal year on June 30, 2020 in an attempt to minimize the financial losses. How naïve we were!
