In this blog post from Jan. 27, I stated that Picasso was on track to be the #1 top-grossing and #1 best-attended single run of a show we produced on our own in Jobsite history. We MORE than topped those numbers by the end of the run.
Picasso at the Lapin Agile completely sold out 12 of 17 performances – including the entire first two weeks of public performances and every Saturday night performance of the run.
Maybe more total people have seen shows we’ve brought back/toured (like The Complete Works of Wiliam Shakespeare (abridged), The March of the Kitefliers, A Girl’s Guide to Chaos or The History of the Devil), but never have we done that sort of business in one sit-down run over the course of four weekends.
And I can’t help but thinking – in this economy, right after the holidays with the NFL Playoffs going on and the Super Bowl IN our town? That’s amazing. It’s also a testament to my assertions that this area is on the rise, that Jobsite is headed in the right direction on a steep incline.
I’m hoping maybe in all those numbers that we got new faces in the door. Faces that want to come back for more.
We’re even rolling out a special on mini-season tickets good for the final three productions (The Lieutenant of Inishmore, Rabbit Hole and Pericles). If anyone is not a current Jobsite season ticket holder, they’ll be able to purchase those final three shows at our Early Bird rate of 30% off. That makes each ticket just $17.15 (normally $24.50) PLUS you just pay a one-time handling fee per order instead of a per-ticket service charge – saving you even more. Visit the TBPAC Ticket Office or call 813.228.7827 and ask for the Jobsite mini-sub.
