The weekend killing of Fountain Theatre director Bennett Bradley was not a robbery after all, police now think. The suspect, Jose Fructuoso, and Bradley knew each other.
Bradley, 59, was directing the West Coast premiere production of "The Ballad of Emmett Till," which was scheduled to open next month at the Fountain and will go on in his honor. His functions at the Fountain have included include audience development, producer and director, says Playbill.com. Bradley received the 2006 OVATION Award and the 2007 NAACP Award for his direction of August Wilson's "Joe Turner's Come and Gone."
