Closing time

SatchmoJDTPrePub.172-188x188Satchmo at the Waldorf is nearing the end of its off-Broadway run at the Westside Theatre. The final performance will be on Sunday, June 29, at three p.m.

If you’re counting, that adds up to a four-month New York run—18 previews and 136 performances. Not too shabby for a novice playwright who never expected his first play to be performed anywhere, much less in Orlando, Lenox, New Haven, Philadelphia, and New York. I’m infinitely grateful to John Douglas Thompson, Gordon Edelstein, and my other wonder-working colleagues who made it possible.

I should add that we’ve had numerous inquiries from other cities, and that we expect the play to be performed elsewhere in due course. According to the press release announcing the closing, “Future productions are planned for San Francisco, Chicago and London.” I’ll say no more for the moment, but…watch this space.

In the meantime, go here to order tickets for the remainder of the New York run. Don’t wait—time is short!
