“Senior Moments” breaking box office records in Orange County

Posted on: June 29, 2014

Senior Moments Poster Front of Playhouse low resThe production of Senior Moments which I’m directing at the Camino Real Playhouse, San Juan Capistrano, Orange County, is breaking the theater’s box office records. It started out in Stage II, the black box theater, which is normally configured for 40 seats.

Because of advance interest, they reconfigured it to 64 seats. After the first 2 performances, we were overselling that, so they added 2 more performances. Still overselling, so they’ve moved all remaining performances to the 90 seat Mainstage theater. It’s the first time in the 25+ year history of the theater they’ve ever done that.

Last night, we had 101 people in the theater. They added chairs, there were people standing, and they still turned people away.

We’re talking about taking the show to Broadway, but that would make it difficult for us to get home in time to have our milk and cookies and still be in bed by 9 pm.First Love - RAC(K) low res
