Saturday, September 13, we had the last performance of the O Best Beloved 2014 tour at Adam Sussman’s Parker Street Odditorium — and it was fantastic!
Mr Sussman sent this dispatch to Facebook after the show:
Much to the surprise and delectation of all assembled, at the end of the show, two galant strangers stood up to announce that the production had been awarded an Awesome Foundation AWESOME GRANT for $1000 and presented directors Joan Howard and Rebecca Longworth with the prize in LED lit suitcase complete with branded sunglasses! — with Joan Howard andRebecca Longworth.
And indeed! Board members of the San Francisco Awesome Foundation surprised us with a glowing briefcase full of dollars after the show! We’re proud, elated, and really really grateful to be awesome.
Joan and Rebecca had to don shades to take in the awesomeness of the Awesome Foundation’s generous grant!
It’s true, O Best Beloved will be coming to a public space near you, aboard the inimitable FluxWagon. She’s a beaut! Or she will be, thanks to a generous CASH Grant from Theatre Bay Area, and the design savvy of our very own Joan Howard.
Stay tuned for tour dates and locations! We’ll post them here, and The Professor, PhD is likely to spread the word to the Twitterati.
