RED: Celebrating 100 Performances!

Tonight, March 6, marks the 100th performance of the production and the beginning of the extension and final week of the run.  Amazing. Only a few seats are left for the final week and audiences response is as strong as ever. Patrick and I are so grateful for this extraordinary experience.  We still discover, it is still energized as we enter the stretch run to the finish. Thank you to everyone at The Arena for this remarkable opportunity.
