You heard it here... well, not quite first. At the end of this, their eleventh season, Defiant Theatre will be disbanding. The company that was founded in 1993 by a group of U of I grads and quickly attracted young audiences with its provocative, "dangerous" style, has decided to pull the plug with most of the founding members having moved on. They'll finish out the run of their current production of The Pyrates (p.s., I'm in it) and conclude with A Clockwork Orange, currently in rehearsals for a September opening. Full story at PerformInk.
