Two sold-out nights!

The play I directed opened this past weekend and we sold out Friday and Saturday night! Yesterday's matinee was 2/3 full (pretty good for a Sunday afternoon)!

I wish I could take all the credit but the truth is I can take very little of it. The producers know their audience very well and they are getting the word out through the press and gossip columns, etc. and it's working.

I hope to work with these folks again sometime. Heck, I hope they produce a play that I'VE written at some point.

It's nice to be part of something that looks like a big hit.

Excellent!! Congrats!! Theatre is so hard to be successful in. No doubt you've been involved with more not-so-successful's than the other way around. Enjoy!!

Thank you all for commenting. Yes, it is a good play and I think they will be able to do a lot with it. They might even make it into a movie. I hope they offer me the chance to direct it.

I've definitely had my share of not-so-successful projects. What's horrible, though, is when you're involved in a play or something that's really good and you STILL can't get people to show up. Arg. You just want to grab folks and shake them and say, "You HAVE to see this! Come in, sit down, and shut up!" That rarely works, for some strange reason.
