    This is sad news.
    Is it typical for an ‘incoming executive director’ to shut down a company as his first piece of business? Especially a beloved and popular organization such as Gotham.? Must have been some financial mess for other options not to have been tried first.
    It would be interesting to know what more there is to this than could be covered in the column inches allotted to this story.
