Burgle: Bubble and Gurgle! – February 16, 2017

Dear Marshians,

I was talking to a friend about the times and how it increasingly feels more and more community-based at The Marsh. Her response was, ‘of course, it is so hard for me to read the news these days. I need to get my ‘media’ filtered through comedy and performances.’

And because Marsh performances kind of organically burgle up (that’s bubble and gurgle), the shows are as relevant as Dan Hoyle’s THE REAL AMERICANS, who is close to selling out for his three-week run. How cool last Saturday, was it to hear Adam Werback talk about his new organization WTF (Win the Future).

There are still a few tickets left for week 3. And next Friday, 2/24, there’s a talkback by Mark Follman, the national affairs editor at “Mother Jones.” What incredible insights and point of views from Dan and his post-performance guests.

Al Letson’s SUMMER IN SANCTUARY continues in San Francisco. Sharing his story about his attempt to make a difference in the lives of a group of high-risk kids, Letson’s mesmerizing performance was a gift to me and may venture to say, the people who see it. I cannot say how incredible or important this story is. I encourage you to see this show. If you have seen it, please encourage your friends. To help, we are offering $10 off tickets for this weekend with the passcode “encourage.”

Just 2 more Saturdays for Tom Ammiano’s MINCING WORDS and then we have extended it for 2 additional Thursdays.

Ghostlight Project 2: February 24

We were so pleased with the response from the participants of the January Ghostlight Project, that we have planned a second night of community discussion. (Hopefully, the start of many!). Please join us February 24 at 6:30pm, the Friday after President’s Day, for a POTLUCK and performance.

Let’s talk about your ideas; what role you see theater playing in the next 4 years; The Marsh’s role. If you want to read a short something, bring it. Then at 8pm, we can meander over to the mainstage to see Al Letson’s Summer in Sanctuary. For tickets, please use the passcode “resist” for a $10 discount. If you are in need of a more reduced ticket price, please response to this email, we will accommodate.
