Last week we had a matinee that was filled with theatre and art students. They were by far the most giving audience we’ve ever had. They applauded for costume changes, danced along to our conductor, cheered for rising stage platforms, and jumped to their feet for an ovation I’ll never forget. Company management could hear them all the way from their offices. At the end we had a short talk back and I was incredibly touched by their kind words. I want to thank those students for what was and will be one of the most memorable shows at Arena Stage! You reminded us all why we love live theatre! 🙏🏽
“There’s so much history and beauty in these classic musicals. When they go to see it, if it is the case that they are coming to see me, I really hope they are walking away with so much more.” - Thank you Keith Loria from @playbill for the great interview. Link in bio.
