We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Seasons' Greetings



As 2008-2009 seasons wind down, local theater companies are starting to announce their slates for 2009-2010. Pioneer Theatre Company led the way with its season announcement in April. This week, others are following suit.

Salt Lake Acting Company dedicated its 2009-2010 season to the late actor Tony Larimer, who appeared in several productions over the course of more than 25 years. Productions are scheduled to include Harold Pinter's The Caretaker; Terrence McNally's Master Class; the modern-day-Antigone drama Too Much Memory; the comic Margaret Fuller biography Charm; a musical adaptation of the kid-lit classic Go Dog Go!; and Saturday's Voyeur 2010.

Plan-B Theatre Company also announced its new season in conjunction with last weekend's And the Banned SLAMMED On fundraiser. It's another all-world-premiere season by local playwrights, including Matthew Ivan Bennett's Alice in Wonderland spin Radio Hour: Alice; Jenifer Nii and Debora Threedy's Wallace, which intertwines the biographies of writers Wallace Stegner and Wallace Thurman; and Eric Samuelsen's "who discovered America" satire Amerigo.
