This is the last scheduled weekend for the five week run of the Newton Nomadic Theater’s Molly Sweeney. Sunday’s final show at Dunn Gaherins is sold out but there are still tickets available for Friday (3/4) and Saturday (3/5) evening shows at Gregorian Rugs, and they’ll both feature live pre-show music by fiddler Emerald Rae. Tickets ($20) available at NewtonNomadicTheater.org. Audiences have been loving it – check out the audience quotes on the web site.
The big news though is that we’ve just added four more shows. The first one is particularly exciting. We’ll be performing for a blind audience at a free show at the Carroll Center for the Blind on March 11 and it’s already nearly sold out. After that the company will pack up the camels for three out-of-town shows. Vineyard Haven Library on March 13. Puddingstone Tavern in Mission Hill on March 20, and the Brendan Behan in Jamaica Plain on March 27.
Many thanks to the Newton audiences that have made this show a success. We’ve got another good one in rehearsal at the moment. A Picasso by Jeffrey Hatcher will open in early April, featuring Linda Goetz and Stephen Cooper .
The last bit of news is that we’ll be holding the next Nomad Story Slam on Saturday April 30 as part of the Newton Festival of the Arts. The theme for the night will be “trouble“. That will give you all sorts of latitude for a good story – so start working on one now 😉
