With the holiday season moving towards its end, so goes The Iliad. The show will close on Sunday, January 2 with a 3:00 matinee. There are tickets available for that performance, as well as evening performances on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. There will be a champagne/sparkling cider toast with the cast at the New Year's Eve and New Year's Day shows, which should be fun. If the reception after the opening is any indication, then take it from me, there's something a little unnerving about watching these girls socialize while covered in blood.
And in other news, rehersals are well under way for our next production, The New Electric Ballroom, which starts previews on January 20. Keep an eye out for more news on that one as the opening draws closer.
