Anonymous donor helps keep Colony Theatre in Burbank going

With apologies to Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, the title of this theater tale could be "Out of the Woods." The Colony Theatre in Burbank said a fundraising push that began around Thanksgiving snowballed into about $260,000 -- more than five times what initially was expected and enough to put the theater on secure fiscal footing 16 months after it had announced it was on the verge of closing. Hundreds of supporters "opened their hearts and wallets," said Barbara Beckley, the Colony’s co-founder and artistic director. "Needless to say, our gratitude is boundless.”  PHOTOS: Arts and culture in pictures by The Times  Beckley...
