Almost Sold OUT

Less than TWO weeks until this exciting reading of Othello and I thought I should post a quick ticket update.  Sunday is SOLD OUT, there are only 3 seats remaining for Saturday and I believe in the teens for Friday.  So if you want to see it, this isn’t something to drag your feet about.  Email for space reservation – and bring your friends!
