During our recent production of “Yours, Anne” we had one of those wonderful moments that is too good not to share. This illustrates the richness and value that the arts bring to the community and Eventide is thrilled to be involved here
On a regular basis, those of us involved in local, community, theater enjoying sharing what we love to do. And then, every once in a while along comes something special in the process of putting on the performance that brings great rewards to all of us. That happened here
Our director of “Yours, Anne” – Kay Deford – received a call from Enid Futterman, the libretto for the play. As the story goes, back in December 2015, a man who played the dentist, Fritz Pfeffer, in the original production 30 years ago, saw our Facebook announcement of auditions. He passed this info onto Enid.
Enid wanted to know all about the show, the casting, the set design, etc. And she kept in touch throughout the 8 weeks of rehearsal. In another small world connection one of our local Chatham residents and actor at Eventide, Lou Maloof, used to work with Enid & Michael Cohen (composer) in advertising in NY. Lou came to see the show, loved it and contacted Enid & Michael encouraging them to come. This was a premiere of their show. They loved it and were delighted to come. Of course our cast and team were thrilled to have them there.
Bringing this kind of richness of experience is what Eventide is all about and we look forward to more adventures. Stay tuned !!
