Best Downturn Fundraising

Tennessee Repertory Theatre

The Rep looked the recession in the eye, and—so far, anyway—it was the recession that blinked. In these troubled times, no one's out of the woods yet, but when the Rep needed $100,000, by golly, they went out there and got it, by making an effective appeal to the theatergoing community. The company also held a fundraiser at Mercy Lounge with cool contributions from Nashville music artists and also involved themselves in various arts-and-crafts-style moneymakers. When the going gets tough, the tough get going. (And, as far as we know, no one's had to take their clothes off yet.) MARTIN BRADY
