A message from Artistic Director, Michael Colucci...
A MAGIC MOMENT AT REDTWIST
On the lovely summer evening of Friday, June 14, playwright Leslye
Headland came to see the Redtwist production of her play, Reverb, and
while we were getting acquainted with Leslye, who is a very friendly
and charming young woman, Tracy Letts walked in to see the show, and he
greeted us warmly. We introduced Leslye to Tracy, and it was a thrill to
see the terrific young playwright's utter delight at meeting the
Pulitzer Prize-winning author, fresh from his Tony Award
for Best Actor. It was the very best moment this season at
Redtwist…and it wasn't even on stage!!
I share this story with you because, no matter how much magic we make on
stage, we still haven't figured out how to spin gold. We need you,
our patrons, to philanthropically support our theatre. Our goal is to
continue to bring you cutting edge work from the best emerging
playwrights, directors and actors. And we need your help. Please
press the DONATE button above. OR you can send a check directly to
Redtwist and help us save the transaction fees (particularly helpful for
large donations). Kindly give what you can -- $25, $50, $100, $1,000,
$10,000. We promise to give back to you the way we know best -- through
And here's a sneak preview…we open the 13-14 Season on Oct 5th with another Pulitzer Prize-winner, Clybourne Park, by
Bruce Norris. We'll announce the rest of next season at the Redtwist
Rave on Tuesday, August 13, where I hope you will buy lots of flex
tickets for all our shows—off-night and late-night too!
Thank you so much for all your support of Redtwist Theatre!!!
