For every show this season at Pacific Theatre, Maki created a ten minute lobby play that not only recounted the events of her life in the theatre, but also picked up on the themes of the play on the main stage. They ran in the lobby each night around 7:30, and over the course of the year she accumulated a growing circle of enthusiastic fans, who often commented on her winsome vulnerability, plucky humour and fascinating story.
Now she's assembling the whole year's worth of "chapters" into a single story, and I sincerely hope that the people who've been touched and entertained by her work this season will hear about this opportunity to fill in the gaps with the stories they missed, revisit the stories that charmed and delighted them, and see them in the context of her whole fascinating story.
This week only: Wed-Sat 8pm + 2pm Sat matinee
