Strange thing happened at GLEE CLUB the other night: a couple of teen-aged girls and their mothers showed up at the Access Theater to see our little play. They had seen a listing mislabeling our show as about high school kids - it is, of course, about miserable middle-aged men.
While I understand we have this guy in the play, and while I did see those teen aged girls laugh quite a bit at all the awful pain they were witnessing, and while I do not want to dissuade any person who would like to pick up tickets to see our "deeply offensive" play, I believe it is a very bad idea to bring anyone under 17 to see it.
Thank you for your time and attention.
