The Zebra Shirt of Lonely Children's final performance
At 4:15pm today, Matthew Trumbull's The Zebra Shirt of Lonely Children (which I directed) plays its final performance as a part of the New York International Fringe Festival 2012. The show is a critics pick at Time Out New York, recommended by the New York Press and Newsday and was well-reviewed by Theatermania, among others. More than any of that, of course, is the audience's response. I've been touched to see jaded theater-goers red eyed and smiling after Trumbull's open-hearted performance.
Tickets are no longer available online, but there are often several held back at the door. I certainly hope you'll be able to join us today.
