“The Morini Strad,” the surprise hit playing at the Colony Theatre in Burbank, has generated enough revenue for the cash-strapped venue to produce the next play of its season, the thriller “I'll Be Back Before Midnight,” according to company officials. But the theater still needs to raise $500,000 to continue operations and have enough money for an endowment to sustain itself, they warned. “We've always just lived close to the edge,” said Barbara Beckley, the theater's artistic director.

Times are tough for KCET-TV. The former PBS outlet announced Friday that it would lay off 22 employees, or nearly one-fifth of its staff, as it completes a merger with the Bay Area satellite provider Link Media. Now called KCETLink, the Burbank-based nonprofit entity is scrambling to reposition itself as a "transmedia" company that provides content to mobile devices and other platforms as well as televisions. The company has hired a well known PR firm, Rogers & Cowan, to help manage its image during the transition.  The harsh belt-tightening has been dictated by poor financial results.

Both political action committees belong to the educational reform group StudentsFirst, led by former District of Columbia schools chancellor Michelle Rhee.
