Longtime friend of PT Craig Erickson just sent this email, about the abrupt closing and brief, coming resurrection of the Mamet show he's in...
Last Saturday night, there was a fire next door to Studio 16 where we were hoping to finish our successful run of RACE by David Mamet.
100 shivering people on the sidewalk (some having travelled great distances) in hopes of seeing this explosive take on race and the justice system - Mamet style!
It seemed like we were allowed to go back in, but no - the sprinkler system meant a very wet stage. Cancellation. What a disappointment. A very incomplete feeling.
But Mitch and Murray Productions (as well as the cast and crew) have decided that that closing night can't be the end.
Thanks to a lot of compromise and effort from many parties, we are offering 2 more nights -
Thursday December 6th and Friday December 7th
Discount 20$ tickets at the door with 15% of the gate going to help a family on the North Shore
Or buy tickets online
If you've got a night free (80 minutes), check out this play, and participate in some Christmas redemption!
Here's a blog post about it all from director Aaron Craven.
