Hopefully, right now you’re feeling good about yourself for voting. Or you have a plan to hit the polls later this evening.

We all have a lot on our minds right now, but take some time to think about what is good in your life. Because that's what we're doing on this rainy day.

When we started this season, we already felt some momentum from reaching a few important milestones. We had retired our chubby debt line; chiseled away at our operating model and arrived at a balanced budget; ended our last fiscal year in the black; and assembled a motivated and talented team to not only create the art, but also to support it. Our board, led by the indomitable David L. Cohen, grew by eight. Heck, we even gave the lobby a fresh coat of paint.

All that we needed was an affirmation that you still cared. And I’m overjoyed to report that our first play, Sweat, was an unqualified ‘win’ for PTC.  We hit our sales goal in Week 2, the theatre was filled with a more diverse audience, of all ages, and your thoughtful responses to our survey gave us encouragement (and some constructive criticism) to keep it up.  Thank you, for delivering the goods. Because it’s like voting: if we make theatre and no one comes, we are left with a void.  We’ve lost the opportunity to engage with other humans, and to be exposed to new thoughts and ideas. We think of what might have been, had we only stepped outside of our comfortable homes and put ourselves on the line.

I’d like to thank, once more, those who helped us make Sweat - Victor Keen & Jeanne Ruddy Keen, Linda & David Glickstein, as well as the Charlotte Cushman Foundation for their additional support. Their faith and patronage made it possible to bring this timely, unflinching story to life and our audiences were touched.

If you were as inspired as we were by Sweat, we hope you will consider making a tax-deductible contribution. We are in this together. 

Thank you for all you do.
