Thank You, Team Expedition!

This past weekend, Expedition opened at the Fourth Street Theatre to sold-out crowds. In just two weeks, our cast and crew put together an extraordinary production that gave audiences a sneak peek at the talent that they'll most likely be seeing on Broadway in a few years. Every summer, I volunteer for front-of-house duties, so that I can meet the audiences that make our work possible (especially the family members who raised, nurtured, and encouraged such outstanding young artists). What I enjoy the most about working in the lobby are the things that you hear from audience members. For instance:

"I wish there had been a program like this when I was in high school!"

"I've seen a lot of off-Broadway shows by adults that are nowhere near this good."

"As far as I know, there's no other program like this in the world."

These students put together a show that any seasoned theater professional could be proud of. We'll have more to share with you in the coming weeks (including a sizzle reel by the folks over at GreenLit Productions), but we wanted to get some production photographs out as quickly as possible. We also wanted to take a moment to thank our incredible donors who made this all possible -- including the Nancy Quinn Fund, a program of the Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York (A.R.T./New York); the Actors' Equity Association Foundation; and our Kickstarter donors. Without you, our students would not have access to this life-changing opportunity. Thank you so much to our donors, audiences, and families for taking this expedition with us!
