Act One, Scene Two: Performances start next week!
This show is a hidden mammoth undertaking, what with wrangling playwright submissions, and taking into account the number of characters in each play (cause they're all different!) and the individual schedules of the playwrights and the actors . . . it's a big job! Major kudos to Alan Goy, literary manager, and Susan Snyder, assistant literary manager, for doing the crazy math. AND to Clay Robeson, producer, for wrangling the staff support. (Incidentally, if you'd like to be a front-of-house volunteer for a night or two, it means you get to see the show for FREE! Contact us via the web form and let us know.)
We're drawing in on our first week of performances, and the cast is so so delightfully talented that I just can't wait. And since Alan and Susan have been dealing with the play submissions, I as the director have only the vaguest of notions what's coming to us from script-land; every show is really going to be a delightful surprise!
Below, check out whose first scenes we'll be reading, when! And you can totally buy your tickets right now. See you at the theater!
