My apologies for being out of touch over the past few weeks. We’ve had a great deal going on and there’s hardly been time to write. I have a long list to report and will try to do so today in brief. Over the subsequent weeks I’ll focus on unpacking each point one-by-one with a little more detail.
First, the Norman McGrath prints are in my possession and they are amazing! For those backers who are owed these I will begin that fulfillment process soon. Next week I’ll have more for you on the exact timing and method. Also for those interested in purchasing a print, we will have them up for sale on the website very soon as well.
Second, I believe I reported in my last update eons ago that we were booking The Lion on Theatre Row right in the heart of Manhattan’s theater district. I’m happy to report that the ink is almost dry on the contract and it looks like November 12 will be our opening. I’ll be sure to let you know when that is official so we can begin to schedule those backers who have show tickets coming their way.
Third, you may have heard through social media that our Penn Station Remnant Tour co-hosted with Untapped Cities was a great success. Not only did we sell out the one intended backer tour, Untapped Cities had such interest from their readership that they created a second tour. That one sell out too! Then there were enough people on the waiting list to hold two more tours in mid-April AND… wait for it… both sold out as well! Now we’re looking at tour dates for the beginning of June. The backers who attended our first tour reported that they really enjoyed the tour. If you’re interested in joining us in late June, you won’t be disappointed. As soon as we finalize the date, I will reach out to you guys first in case tickets go fast like the others.
And lastly, I am excited to report that the New York Transit Museum has picked The Eternal Space to be highlighted in it’s evening transit arts program called Platforms. We are setting the date and finalizing our offering’s format but it could be as early as April 1. If you’re in the area and want a sneak peak at the show you should come on down. We will be performing inside one of the most unique museums in the city.
Ok, that was a long one, but again, there are many awesome things happening for our production. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I look forward to being in touch next week.
