In the post-tropical cyclone swirl of events, we’ve come to see that we in DC have been spared the worst of what’s been a historic Climate-Change-Harbinger-Warning with devastation to the North and East of us, and blizzards to the immediate West, and a sunken Tall Ship due South. We’ve got friends who are suffering with outages, and downed trees, but again, we’re okay, and power’s held for the luckiest of us — and most of us are.
The show will go on for us tonight, with OUR CLASS performing its previously announced “additional performance” at 7:30. Special Hurricane Discounts ($20) available at the box office (just mention code “Sandy).
Monday night saw the postponement of ANDY AND THE SHADOWS, our final workshop reading of the wild month of October. We’ve rescheduled it for this coming Monday. Our group of UM/UC/ND students are rebooking to come that Monday at 7:30, but the reading moves to the library, so seating is more limited.
Make sure to reserve your place here.
Friday saw a Tea @ 2 workshop reading of Jacqueline Lawton’s THE HAMPTON YEARS, what will be our season finale, and what turned out to the show’s third successful public reading since its first back in January of this year when it helped inaugurate our Locally Grown: Community Supported Art festival. A good number of students from throughout the city were in attendance. We’d love to hear from them. One comment, below, gets us started!

…I had the opportunity to see a reading of this play that’s not due for production until late December (if I remember correctly [nope, May-June!]). It’s unfortunate that I won’t be here to see the end product. On the brighter side, witnessing the development of the play and the character was very exciting.
This was my first time at a reading of any play and so I did not know what to expect. Although the actors were simply reading their lines, you could already see the development of their character and the many possibilities to the scenes. I liked the fact that after the reading we got to do a talk back with the playwright, director, and dramaturge. The audience got the opportunity to give feedback both on the overall play and on each one of the characters.
Stay dry, stay safe, stay productive!
