Hello Fantastic Funders!
What a tremendous ride In the Bar of a Tokyo Hotel has been. We finished our run with three performances that were at 90% capacity! We had two excellent reviews - (links attached) paid out more than six thousand dollars in artist / staff salaries. By all accounts this little known Tennessee Williams gem was a tremendous success. So much so that we're in the process of exploring re-staging it out here, in NYC, and as one of patrons from across the pond suggested, London or Scotland. We'll keep you posted.

As you know, this was our first production at this new location. Our future, thanks to your support, looks bright indeed. Our next play, Extremities, opens May 10th and runs through May 27th. It is exciting to be presenting another great play, and so soon! I have attached the link to our Kickstarter campaign if you'd consider helping us again. Here it is - http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/180967760/extremities?ref=users
I'll be sending more details about where the Tokyo money went, and reactions from the audience, in a few days. (I'm still catching my breath) I believe that an organization, particularly a non-profit, has a responsibility to its supporters. You have faith in us, and I want to prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that we deserve it. You enabled us to do terrific theatre. Tokyo was really lovely. For me and everyone else involved it is one of those theatre events that will always glow in our memories. Thank you.
