    We (well, two out of the three of us) are looking forward to seeing you in Charlotte Sunday evening. My husband and I are bringing our 13-year old son with us this time, and he (our son) is rather leery of the fact that “Shakespeare” is in the name of your company. We had an awful experience with an outdoor production of Tempest this summer, and he is judging all things Shakespearean or theater-related by that. So I am also looking forward to seeing him change his mind (on at least the theater-related part) after seeing your show. (Then maybe the next time you are in the area with the Shakespeare show, I can bring him to that one without any kicking, screaming or pouting.) I played the “Crumbs at Midnight” podcast for him last night to prove that not everything you do is Shakespeare, and it did elicit a few grins. See you Sunday!

  2. I was bummed (but excited for you guys) to find out the November 14 performance of the Ultimate Christmas Show in Reston, VA is sold out! I’m a huge fan, have seen your shows all over the world, and this is the only one I haven’t seen. Hopefully I will be able to find a ticket. I hope you guys have a great performance!

  3. Austin,
    Talked with Zach Moore this evening. Found out that he works with RSC. My talking to him reminded him that he received a call from you and still needed to get back to you. Which he obviously did while I was watching the show at the Pittsburgh Public Theater. I told him to mention me to you and to my surprise, you remembered who I am.
    All right, enough of the background – NOW GET TED PAPPAS TO GET YOU GUYS HERE WITH YOUR CHRISTMAS SHOW!
    Zach said it is the only show you haven’t performed here. Of course, you know that I have seen ALL of your shows AT LEAST ONCE and most more than once!
    SO, get Ted’s phone ringing and set a date (even for just a weekend, if that’s all you and Ted can squeeze in) with your Christmas Show. Of course, it would be ideal to have it during December, near Christmas or Hanukah – December 8 – 15. But at this late date, I know that it’s next to impossible. Sometime duriing the winter would also be timely.
    Lookng forward to hearing from you.
    Thanks for the podcasts.
