The Colony Theatre's growing pains:
...recently, the troupe has been involved in a bitter power struggle between many veteran company members and artistic director Barbara Beckley, contributing to the departures of more than half the actors in the group.
The Colony moved to a new 276-seat Burbank venue in 2000 and began working on a fully professional basis in 2002. But since the move, about 60% of the 90 or so actors who belonged to the company have left. Newcomers have brought the total membership up to 46
(from Los Angeles Times). Success can tranform a theatre company in unexpected ways, The Colony is not nearly the only, nor the most dramatic, example.
