I thought I'd share how things have been going the past couple weeks. It's been pretty busy, and all to lead up to our opening night!

Venue prep day was pretty much as expected. A lot of cleaning and setting up the lobby area. I believe I swept every single corner of that theater, even the hallway for the audience entrance. There's three other venues in our building and it took everyone's help to get the theaters up and running. On a side note, there's a somewhat new addition to the FringeNYC intern/volunteer staff - the FringeTECHNICIAN. I don't know where they came from, but they rocked the venue prep day. These folks worked very hard and did a lot of the hard work, which was much appreciated by the participants who did not have much technical experience.

Tech was this past Monday. Perhaps since we've been through this a couple times, we knew the rundown and it ran super smooth. Thank you to Kate Gibson for taking some production shots and Molly Garber for a second eye as well as keeping on book during the run.

Yesterday was our opening. Thanks to those of you who shared our evening. Since I am the ACR for the show (that means I act as liaison to the cast and crew as well as sign off on the Box Office tickets), I am required to stay in the lobby area. As I sat listening to the audience laugh and clap, I swelled with pride for my husband. I am so glad that we've been able to share these beautiful pieces of work inspired by Edgar Allan Poe.
