Holy moly, we are in the single digits for the number of days left until opening night of Spring Awakening. While the cast, crew and creative team are making all their final adjustments to the show, we are getting ready to celebrate their accomplishments with a spectacular party.
Imagine that My Super Sweet Sixteen show . . . except with all of Broadway’s finest and a little less glitter. That’s an opening night party. First you need gifts in the hundreds. Then you need one of Manhattan’s swankiest night clubs. Throw in an open bar and hors d’oeuvres and you’re halfway there. The celebrity guests are really just icing on the cake. (Did I forget to mention the cake? I’ll be ordering that next week.)
Opening night on Broadway includes all the red carpet glamour of film openings. We’ll be dressed in our best and posing at the step and repeat. There will be a massive champagne toast for all of our guests. There are even whispers of a Spring Awakening-themed photo booth. Be prepared for an abundance of selfies and congratulatory tweets.
Our office is completely overrun with tissue paper and gift bags, but it’s all for good reason. This will be our opportunity as Producers to demonstrate our love and appreciation for the people who’ve been working at all hours to put this show together. It will also be me my last hurrah as Associate Producer. Once the show is open many of our jobs are done and we will move on to other projects.
But don’t worry; you don’t have to miss out on the fun! We will be live streaming the opening night party for all our fans to enjoy.
Only 9 days left until opening night of Spring Awakening!
