WOW! It's hard to believe that it's already been a month since we returned from the Cincinnati Fringe Festival. We are so thrilled that we had the opportunity to bring Shit Men Have Said, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Patriarchy to the beautiful Queen City, and stoked by the overwhelmingly positive feedback we received on the show. After weeks of planning, writing, and rehearsing, it was so gratifying to see our creation come to life, and add to the ongoing dialogue about gender stereotypes and systematic sexism, and what we as ordinary people can do to combat these damaging practices in our culture.
I also want to give a shout-out to the wonderful folks at the Cincy Fringe Festival and Know Theatre for putting together a fantastic festival, and making us out-of-towners feel like part of the family. From the outstanding performances like We Did It, Girl; Post-Traumatic Super-Delightful, and Cosmic Nomad to the nightly fun and games at the Fringe Bar, the Cincy Fringe experience was eye-opening and exciting, and we can't wait to come back!
But before we head back to Ohio, we have a lot of exciting things happening right here in our hometown of Philadelphia. This Thursday, ReVamp will be representing at Philadelphia Style magazine's "Best of Style" party at the Kimmel Center, where we'll be rubbing elbows with Philly's movers and shakers, and raffling off some great prizes. And we're putting the final touches on our first full season of productions, which will include shows in November and March. Stay tuned for the full season announcement soon!
