Black Rep. shuts doors temporarily
The Providence Black Repertory Company hopes to reopen within a week after part of the ceiling collapsed above the company's Xxodus Café.
According to a statement, a layer of sheet rock and attached duct work fell last Thursday, damaging equipment and part of the stage and forcing the theater to close for repairs, cleanup and safety inspections.
“Rest assured that we take the safety of our patrons very seriously,” Donald King, the artistic, executive director said in a statement, “and this incident in no way reflects negligence on our part.”
King says the theater says is working with insurance agents, structural engineers and contractors to get the theater reopened and ensure that the building is safe and adheres to code.
