A $200,000 state grant is helping to put a dent in the million-dollar-plus gap that remains to open the 300-seat black box theater at the Worcester PopUp at 20 Franklin St.
The Worcester Cultural Coalition on Thursday announced the grant, which comes from the Mass Cultural Council and Mass Development and will go toward construction of the theater. The theater is still $1.5 million shy of what is needed to open its doors, according to Erin Williams, Worcester cultural development officer.
