Today I finally took the first step in planning my summer-of-theatre viewing tour. Once there is acceptance that my life will be even more devoted to the theatre for this summer, I had to take the first step:
Look at the guides for the festivals! Oh my world. There are three festivals that are on my radar this summer because I’m directly working on them. I am the Marketing Director for:
- Rise of the Usher for the Midtown International Theatre Festival;
- My Ass (in the World): The True Story of Love, War and the Taliban…and Dirty Lambada-Dancing;
- Lucky Chick for Fringe Festival; and
- the New York New Works Festival.
However, that means I also need to find out what shows my friends are performing in and throw that into the schedule. I really do hope that you get a chance to support independent theatre this summer. You never know what your take away from a performance will be. And that’s exciting.
See you at the show!
