Lessons

So much great stuff from the 3 For All guys this week, which I'll be unpacking over the next couple of of days via the blog. But one of the best lessons learned for me this weekend as a producer is that it is possible to make this kind of non-festival gig work for out of town troupes. With almost no marketing and almost no turnout from certain corners of the community, we still had houses over 70 both nights. With some more strategic planning and fundraising, this is totally a workable thing.

PGraph owes you a serious debt of gratitude for bringing them here. There's so much we've taken away, and we're already working on restructuring our rehearsals. They definitely gave me a dose of what I needed... just hearing Stephen Kearin say "You'll be doing this for 20 years, so..." was so encouraging. And getting to do lights for/with them was, in retrospect, a dream come true.

I should also say, houses were great, so no big whoop. Just an observation.
