Doug Booher
Speaking on "IU Auditorium Programming"

When times are tough, they're always toughest for the arts. Whether the attraction is a Broadway road show or a night at the opera, ticket sales all across America are sickly and so is philanthropic giving, while artist fees-the costs to book an act-climb higher every year.

Doug Booher is intimately familiar with the plight of the arts. As director of IU Auditorium, Booher knows that keeping his organization fiscally buoyant is as much a priority as booking Les Miz and considerably more challenging.

Booher, who also teaches in the Arts Administration program of the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, must be doing something right. Over the last two years, private funding of IU Auditorium is up by 10 percent. Facility use by community groups-a key measure of organizational vitality-has grown by 16 percent. And here's the real crowd-pleaser: despite rising expenses, the auditorium has managed to maintain the same ticket pricing model since 2001.
