We’re about to enter our third weekend of performances of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. So far we’ve enjoyed 5 of 8 completely sold out performances, with only 8 unsold tickets for all of last week!
We’ve also managed three glowing reviews, certifying this show as an enormous success both critically and at the ticket office:
“The current Jobsite production of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead is the best version of the play I’ve ever seen … every problem the play has is brilliantly solved by director Katrina Stevenson and her four main actors…” – Creative Loafing
“Stoppard’s existential play… needs a steady hand to ground it long enough for audiences to enjoy the frivolity, and Jobsite’s cast and crew did just that.” – Tampa Tribune
“It’s fun, fast-paced and relentlessly clever … Jenkins and Paonessa [have] never been better than they are here under Katrina Stevenson’s direction … If their performances weren’t so strong, Paul J. Potenza might steal the show with his manic and crusty turn as the Player…” – St. Petersburg Times
We’re very happy to start off our 3rd week with another full house, thanks to a large group from Shorecrest. They’re even arriving early for a preshow talk on the play. For those on the hunt for the hot deal and who qualify for student, senior or military rush tickets – this performance may be out of reach as of 30 minutes prior to curtain since there are so few tickets remaining. If this is the night you want to come, get a ticket quick.
As of right now, we still have great availability for the rest of the weekend. I’ll post an update if it’s looking like any of the shows may sell out in advance. Many have told us that they prefer to buy at the window for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the lower service charge. We get it, and want to make sure you know those fees aren’t ours to decide.
If you really do want to see the show and this weekend just isn’t going to cut it, keep in mind we’ve added a fourth and final weekend. We have shows 8pm 4/25-26 and a 4pm show on 4/27. We cannot hold over past 4/27!
We’re having a great time with this play, it was a huge effort to get up and running and the best way to celebrate that at this point is through seeing every chair full for the remaining 7 performances. We hope you can come be a part of it!
