According to JS Online: "Declining attendance in the Quadracci Powerhouse and Stiemke theaters, particularly on weeknights, has led the Rep to shorten engagements in those venues. Powerhouse productions will run four weeks rather than five, and the Stiemke offerings will be trimmed by a few performances. Rep managing director Tim Shields said the reduction would result in an annual savings of about $100,000 and increase the size of the audience at the remaining performances, enhancing the theater-going experience. Members of the resident acting company will be under contract for the same number of weeks, and the new format will simplify rehearsal scheduling."
