Midnight Theatrical's debut production of the "compelling and raw*," play AFTERGLOW, written and directed by S. Asher Gelman, has surpassed one million dollars in ticket sales since it began its incredible record-breaking run last June. The play has been seen by over 23,000 people at the intimate 69 seat, LOFT at the Davenport Theatre (354 West 45 Street).

Due to the show's commercial and critical success, future productions have been announced for next season, including Salt Lake City, Amsterdam, Mexico City, and London's West End.
