Each week, The Observer releases a new video as part of our webisode series, “Patron Saints.” It’s a series that showcases a patron of the arts and the venue to which they donate.
This week’s episode features patrons Ed Town and Steve Rubin. Rubin is a retired professional theater, scene and costume designer who worked for New York City theater groups, Pennsylvania Ballet, Broadway and Off-Broadway productions as well as regional theater groups. Rubin began donating set-design work before Director Iain Webb began at Sarasota Ballet, and once he saw what Webb was doing for the ballet, he and his partner, Town, became financial donors.
Be sure to stay tuned to Scene and Heard weekly to discover the latest episodes.
