Theater in the Catskills

An interesting Bit about Theater and one of the old vacation resorts in the Catskill Mountains of New York (remember Dirty Dancing?) It looks like a group is going to try and revamp the camp to provide a space for theater troupes retreats.

From the NYTimes:

"AT Sugar Maples, a derelict summer resort perched here atop the northern Catskills, the Olympic-size swimming pool has been filled with concrete, and the roller skating rink has fallen into grave disrepair. Waist-high weeds obscure the ball fields. Roofs list, and doors dangle on their hinges. But in this dilapidated holiday spot, a new arts group, the Orchard Project, sees a warm-weather retreat for innovative theater artists. While other residencies, like the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, are devoted to playwrights only or playwright-director teams, the Orchard Project will try to serve entire companies who create work collaboratively."
