Hello Vagabond Theatre Groupies! Your Literary Associate here to give a big “thank you” to everyone who came out to Trident Booksellers & Cafe on Thursday for There Will Be Words. It was an excellent turnout, and a very fun evening.
The development of the plays we present at TWBW (pronounced “tuh-wuh-buh-wuh”) relies heavily on your feedback, and we got some excellent commentary. Judging by the smile on Walt McGough’s face, each response was appreciated, and you can bet every contribution will be immensely helpful as he continues work on Paper City Phoenix.
If you didn’t get the impression, Vagabond Theatre Group is very enthusiastic about theatre, especially when it comes to new works and young playwrights. To stand before a room of people who share that same enthusiasm is almost overwhelming. I cannot even begin to describe the passion and heart that has been on display at every TWBW Trident has so kindly hosted. Thanks to that, we are determined to continuously provide new and innovative works of theatre for your viewing and listening pleasure.
After the reading, Artistic Director James Peter Sotis announced that we will be presenting a full-fledged production of Burning Up the Dictionary by Meron Langsner at Boston Center for the Arts this November. As some of you may recall, our last TWBW was a presentation of that very same play (we’re pulling a True Believers here, so fasten up!). If you’re interested in seeing just how much your support and contributions work their way into the development of new works, you won’t want to miss out.
Again; thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you again, and thank you some more. Without collaboration between artist and audience, VTG simply does not work. It’s like a party where everyone’s invited to experience and contribute to the various stages of its development- Want beer pong? Done. A watermelon eating contest? Done. Beach barbecue? Done. A petting zoo? What the hell, let’s do it!
For updates on our next TWBW, our upcoming productions, or any other Vagabond Theatre happenings, “like” us on Facebook, “follow” us on twitter, or “talk” to us at any local theatre events we attend. We’re easy to identify, and I think you’ll find we’re pretty nice people.
