The arts did not escape the tumult of 2009, mainly as fallout continued from the global economic meltdown that sent many businesses and nonprofits scurrying for cover by cutting costs, downsizing and selling assets. The year started with the shocking news that Laguna Playhouse would sell an adjacent property at 580 Broadway that had been purchased 11 years earlier to grow the theater.
