Thanks to those who have supported our efforts. If you have not yet done so now is the time!
(Besides, it'll make you feel good and who doesn't need a little more feel good in life?)
Good Friday Morning,
Collected from the 'net:
A guy in a bar leans over to the man next to him and says, "Want toI apologize if this issue is brief but I have been stage managing Fox Tales at the Gene Frankel Theater in NYC, not getting back until the wee hours of the morning before going back out to work once again. All will be back to normal next week.
Fox Tales has two more performances: one this coming Monday evening at 8 PM and the last next Sunday at 1 PM so you weekenders have at least one last chance to check it out and support local actors. Subway to Bleeker and then a very short walk or (usually) ample parking right at the theater which is at Bond and Lafayette.
If your organization's event is not here that's pretty much because you didn't tell me about it!
