Week 2: How Are You? – November 17, 2016

Dear Marshians,

One week past election, not sure how I am feeling. How about you? Better? Worse? Anxiety? I know I have been grateful to be part of The Marsh team and the community of audiences.

In fact, last Thursday we organized a special performance of Al Letson’s SUMMER IN SANCTUARY for two San Francisco high schools. Post performance, we had a Q&A. Al asked the students how they felt about the election. They talked about misogyny, their rights. Al then talked about how earlier in the day he had interviewed a white supremacist for his NPR podcast Reveal. (https://www.revealnews.org/). It was darn phenomenal.

If you would like a discount on Summer in Sanctuary tickets, please use the passcode “sanctuary” for $10 off your ticket.

Also, speaking of kids, there’s just a few more performances of Lisa Rothman’s DATE NIGHT AT PET EMERGENCY. It’s a look at the ups and downs of raising kids. It’s also an opportunity to have your kids be in a theater workshop while you are watching the show. A new Marsh approach to childcare, spearheaded by wonderful Lisa. Use the code “fun” for $10 off the child workshop.

Tom Ammiano’s MINCING WORDS is sold out for this week’s closing night performance, but you don’t have to miss it! Tom was able to extend the show for 3 more Saturdays, through December 10.

We are also extending Mark McGoldrick’s THE GOLDEN HAMMER in Berkeley, for three additional Saturdays.

This coming Sunday is the final performance of THE WAITING PERIOD for 2016. We are so thrilled to have had the opportunity to offer this seminal, life-saving show, FOR FREE since January. We are working with Brian Copeland to continue free performances in 2017. If you would like to be part of it, click here to donate.

Also, just in, we will have a MARSH HOLIDAY PARTY on Wednesday, December 14 in Berkeley. Details to follow. I’m thinking about making my kugels.

All my best,
Stephanie Weisman
