Happy New Year! 2014 was a successful and joyful year at The John W. Engeman Theater. Thank you once again for your support and we hope you have enjoyed your experiences here.
In 2014, each of our productions were wonderful, from the gripping family drama of “Other Desert Cities,” to the suspense and plot twists of “Deathtrap,” and the passionate and unforgettable true story of “Evita!” Let’s not forget our most recent production, “A Christmas Story,” which was tremendously well received and garnered wonderful reviews.
This year, we were also able to bring 35 performances of 10 different shows for our Special Events Series. I am still laughing from Shut Up, Sit Down and Eat! We will be expanding our offerings with our Special Events Series in 2015. We will kick off the Series in February with performances of the American Jazz Songbook by a world class jazz trio. We will follow that up later in the month with one of the hottest rising comic ventriloquists in the entertainment industry – John Pizzi.
I am so happy to start 2015 with a bang! “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” was the Tony Award Winner for Best Play in 2013. This hysterical comedy is a mixture of sibling rivalry, regret, lust and love. The New York Times has called this play “Deliriously Funny!” We are excited to welcome famed actress Sean Young (“Blade Runner,” “No Way Out,” “Stripes”) in the role of Masha. I personally cannot wait for this show to start!
Last but not least, keep your eyes open for your Renewal Package later this month. With your Renewal you will receive 4 complimentary Virtual Vouchers for our 2015 Special Events Series. As you know, during this process you will be able to request seat changes. These seat changes are on a first come first serve basis and are not guaranteed, but we will try our hardest to accommodate your needs. Additional instructions can be found on your Renewal Card.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I wish you a wonderful new year filled with abundance, joy, and lots of cherished moments. May 2015 be your best year yet! Looking forward to seeing you soon.
