On Tuesday, August 31, supporters of Next Act Theatre and Renaissance Theaterworks gathered at the Broadway Theater Center for a very special purpose: to march Renaissance Theaterworks across the bridge to its new artistic home at Next Act Theatre. A crowd of excited patrons and fans waved signs, carried banners, cheered, whooped and waved as the procession made its way to 255 S. Water Street.
Once there, guests enjoyed picnic food and socialized outside to the soundtrack of DJ DRiPSweat before heading into the theatre for a preview of both companies’ seasons. April Paul and Tara Mallen read a scene from Renaissance Theaterworks’ upcoming production of THE CAKE, while Mary MacDonald Kerr and Dylan Bolin offered a preview of Next Act’s holiday production of RED HERRING. Both companies then held a town hall with great discussion on reopening, safety protocols and returning for the upcoming season.
Thanks to everyone who joined us and welcome, RTW, to your new artistic home!
