Whew!!! What a whirlwind of a production! We only have one - JUST ONE - performance left of Playroom: Bathroom, and boy has this run been spectacular.
Tonight we had our largest crowd yet: 39 awesome patrons, and was it warm in there or what?! The crowds have also been very consistant, which tells us the word on the street is positive and that our advertising has been working.
And speaking of advertising… Did anyone stop by Circles on the Square this week?!?!!
Gaslight Theatre sure did! How incredible is this – upon inquiring to Circles about featuring the Rich’s Well Made sandwich (said sammie that appears in Matthew S. Hinton’s piece of the same title), we were greeted with not one, not two, not even three…
BUT TWELVE TOTAL SANDWICH SPECIALS.
Now, this was beyond cool and I’ve got to say…. these sandwiches were delightful. Yesterday’s special titled “Circles Customer Writes Play” was quite possibly the best sandwich I’ve ever had in my entire life. Pork, aged Vermont cheddar, and champagne mustard on wheat with lettuce and mayo. Oh, omnipresent Jesus, how delicious! Gaslight Board members and goers alike flocked down to the Public Square Monday and Thursday to grab a special. We even offered half off admission if you brought your receipt!
But all sammies aside, the fact that Circles did this for us was overwhelmingly supportive of Gaslight Theatre Co. and the arts in general! For two days this week, one little business helped one little theatre company and together – it was a beautiful (and tasty) thing.
We have one night left. One more chance to wow the crowd. One more chance to bring eight original pieces to the stage, but not our last chance to bring more awesome theatre to NEPA. It’s been another great year of Playroom and I’ve enjoyed every second and every sandwich.
