First the good news: we've booked our Blackfriars date. September 13, 2010, The Merry Devil of Edmonton will perform on the stage of the Blackfriars Playhouse in Staunton, VA. With a performance date in place, that makes this project real in a way that it wasn't only a week or so ago.
Now the bad news: the venue in Philly I was courting fell through. There was a miscommunication between us and them; I thought they had a performance space that was roughly 25' square, but that's the size of the room. That's not big enough to both perform in and have an audience watch, and so I'm once again on the hunt for a space in Philly. If anyone has any leads they're willing to share, please pass them along.
