Interview with Beverly and Bob Bartner

1-8-18 Interview

6/25/18 Beverly and Bob Bartner had long and successful careers. They were interested in all kinds of performances, but it wasn’t until they were captivated by a production of Wit at the Long Wharf Theater in Connecticut that they decided to actively participate in producing for the theater. Since then they have produced countless productions, and their commitment to producing “good theater,” has remained constant. Bob says “we don’t want to lose money, but when we believe in a play – even if we think that it will probably lose money, we will support it.” This passion for supporting good theater has also resulted in the producing of many big hits. And now Bob and Beverly bring their talent, knowledge and passion to the Asolo Theater in Sarasota.
