Everyman Theatre to Offer Pay What You Can Performance During Grand Opening Week
Everyman Theatre's tradition of a "Pay What You Can Performance" will be the very first public performance at its new location on Fayette Street. This special performance will take place on Tuesday, January 15, 2013. Tickets for this performance of August: Osage County will go on sale at the box office at 5 PM that day, and the show will begin at 7 PM.
Central to Everyman's mission of making theatre accessible and affordable to everyone, this wildly popular event remains open to the public during our special Grand Opening week. Patrons are required to simply "pay what they can" for this very special evening. Tickets are limited and will only be available in-person at the Everyman Box Office that night. Those interested in attending are encouraged to arrive as early, as this performance often sells out.
The Pay What You Can Performance is part of Everyman's Grand Opening Celebration - a week of events celebrating the 22-year old theatre company's brand new location in the Bromo Tower Arts and Entertainment District. All Grand Opening Events will include a performance of the Baltimore premiere of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning tragi-comedy,August: Osage County by Tracy Letts.
Renowned actress Linda Thorson, well known for her role in the television show The Avengers and over 40 years of experience on the New York and London stage, will join Everyman Theatre Resident Company Members Clinton Brandhagen, Deborah Hazlett, Beth Hylton, Wil Love, Bruce Randolph Nelson and Carl Schurr in the Baltimore premiere. The production will continue to run through February 17, 2013.
