Whether or not we’ve said it out loud, the number forty-four has become a mile marker for us. Not to mention, it tends to crop up surprisingly, serendipitously, and meaningfully. For example, from the first Tuesday in January 2012 it was forty-four weeks until election Tuesday, November 6. Kinda creepy, right?
Though we’re “midway” to November 6 it feels like we’re at the beginning and in the middle at the same time. We’ve opened and closed one performance, which leaves roughly 97% of the rest of our productions. Which means it’s about to get nuts — in the best of all possible ways! We’ve retold ourselves, if only between the staff, that there will be a cacophony of work in the next few weeks, and we want to make sure that we’re sharing it with you! In order to best serve you — audience, marketers, dramaturgs, actors and inquiring minds — we’ve set ourselves up with several initiatives including:
Oval Office Hours on Google+: to answer questions about the show a staff-to-interested parties one-on-one-on-one-on-all. Tumblr: to post behind the scenes images from productions across the country. And, of course, Facebook and Twitter: where we invite you to engage us!
All of this is hand in hand with our video project which is taking shape — where we will display 44 videos from productions across the country.
For more info on any of our initiatives, please enquire to playsforpresidents[at]gmail.com. We’re here to help! And we’re glad you’re here on our way to week forty-four and beyond!
