Here’s one take recently heard on the recent funding problems faced by Millville’s Levoy Theater. The Theater anticipated support from the Cumberland County Improvement Authority (CCIA) in the form of a loan. Its complicated funding package is predicated on receiving a loan this month. Now CCIA is making noises about no loan; a bond instead, which delays the whole thing, gums up the works, and creates the possibility of losing other funding.
Who created this crisis? Was it the Magazzu-controlled CCIA board? The speculation is that Lou is behind the whole thing. He will step in at the last minute, “save” the Levoy, and become a hero for Millville, or at least for its Arts District community.
Far fetched? We’ll see. Let’s watch this one.
