Kick-Off Fair: Success!

What fun!  Sunday was the Kick-Off Fair for 2009 Live Theatre Week – a chance for the public to reserve tickets for Free Night of Theatre before the website launched the next day.  An estimated 600 people stopped by to visit with over 40 arts organizations at the Seattle Center’s Fisher Pavilion.  Shows like Beaumont and Caswell: Together Forever and the Rep’s 39 Steps were full before the website even went up!  That still left tons of great shows available for web users, and they have been steadily snapping up tickets to see a play for free.

Two days in, and already 39 out of 60 shows are already completely booked!  This is great news for theatres and great news for the general public; theatres get to meet new people and the public gets to see something they may not have seen otherwise!  Don’t forget there are also special events throughout October 12-18.  It was great seeing all the companies out and about on Sunday.  It definitely felt like a family reunion.
