A simple “please remove” would have sufficed but I appreciate your enthusiasm and professionalism for guerrilla theatre.  You have redefined “spam” as it pertains to promoting a fringe show.  Your message is loud and clear and has been incorporated into my publicity.  Many thanks for informing me that  I had been included in 34st’s Must See list.  No one informed me and it didn’t show up in Google searches for my show and it didn’t come through in our Google Alerts,  so we truly had no clue until your email.

Now how about  coming to see the show? There’ll be a comp ticket waiting for you at the door tonight (seriously).

Many thanks,

Dear Jeffrey,

We get it. In fact, we get it so much that UTB’s counterpart publication, 34th Street Magazine, has already included your show in one of its published articles. ( Congratulations. Do you spam your ghosts long enough until they are finally moved to respond, too? It must be working. Have a great final 3 shows and please stop emailing us unless you have something new to say.

A Performance in the 6th Borough

by on Sep.20, 2010, under The Sixth Boro, Theatre

WHAT:  Material v. Memory, A Walk Through 11 Perishable Events 

WHEN: Tuesday 9/28/10 at 6:34pm sharp (early start due to loss of sunlight; this is an outdoor event)

WHERE:  UPenn’s Kelly Writers House in the Arts Cafe; 3805 Locust Walk, Philadelphia,  PA 

COST:  This event is free and open to the public; no reservations required

You will be taken on a short and lovely evening walk across UPenn’s beautiful campus, stopping along the way to see site-specific performances 3-5 minutes long. I have written and will be performing “Dream Me Up a Bartender” in an old trolley car, a darkly comic monologue about fear, fathers, drinking and the meaning of nightmares.   In keeping with the event’s theme all pieces will be performed one time and one time only, then they’re gone forever with the sinking sun.

Co-produced by the University of Pennsylvania’s Kelly Writers House and the Philadelphia Dramatists Center, and curated by playwright and former ArtsEdge Resident Greg Romero, Material v. Memory is a guided walk through eleven perishable writing events, all designed to be experienced by a traveling audience for three to five minutes, and then to disappear forever. Projects explore questions of space, place, loss, and our infinite/intimate relationship with memory. Also featuring MIKE AGRESTA, BRIGHT LIGHT THEATRE COMPANY, BIDISHA DASGUPTA, PAULA DIEHL, NICOLE GARMAN, BRIAN GRACE-DUFF and WALLY ZIALCITA, CLIFFORD HALL, SHANE HANSON and ALICIA RODRIGUEZ, GREG ROMERO, and MICHELLE TARANSKY.
