    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Oct. 18, 2012) - After 17 years online and dating back to 1990 in print, I've decided to give up doing Sacramento Stage & Theatre.

    Why, you might ask? ...well, I'll point the finger... SS&T has always been 99% about musical theater. Back in December 2011 our reviewer's tickets for California Musical Theatre (Broadway Sacramento & Music Circus) were suddenly cut off with no warning. I only found this out because I inquired about our tickets for "Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles" as I had not heard anything the week leading up to the show. I guess they didn't consider us important enough to even tell us they were cutting off our tickets.

    I've tried to keep SS&T going with information about the other wonderful theater groups and shows in the Sacramento area -- but the heart and soul of this page has been ripped out. It's no longer fun to do, so it's time to quit.

    It's unfortunate that an organization like California Musical Theatre would suddenly turn its back on us after we supported them in print and on the Internet for so many years. We don't quite buy their excuse that seats were at a premium and they no longer had room for us. There were always empty seats in the area where they seated the press at every show we attended.
