We’re launched, in more ways than one! About 300 people showed up for a first preview last night in a theater that fits in only 242 standing room. So we turned away many, but hopefully folks will come back tonight for our second Pay What You Can preview, or one of the discounted previews running Saturday at 8, or Sunday and Monday at 7:30. Each preview will be followed by a post-show chat of some kind. It’s too interesting for us NOT to have a talk-back session, especially with our wonderful playwright, Deb Margolin in town.
Check out Deb’s inspiring talk with our team on the first day of rehearsals back at the beginning of August. The first video of the new season’s below. What’s fascinating is that our set is kind of mirrored by the larger surround of our first day rehearsal room, the DCJCC library. A set all about books is unveiled in a room all about books. And that spirit and meaning kind of plays out in the performing of this poetic play as well.
Here’s the video.
Let us know your reactions, to last night’s performance — and to the advent of this play finally making it back to DC, where it’s belonged all along! We’re so happy to be working on this play and sharing it with so many!
