QUILLS opens Friday!
Moved to the Announcements page at Gus's suggestion:
It's the ultra-crowded holiday theatre season. Options abound. Amid the Zombies and Santas and Scrooges and slapstick, and even a staged Disney cartoon, there arrives on the scene a certain scandalous writer of yore; a man whose works were so violent, so fiendishly erotic, so lurid, that even modern audiences find them hard to stomach - and impossible to put down.
Yes, it's the Marquis de Sade, that jolly old imp, whose last days in the Charenton asylum are chronicled in

Maybe you've heard rumors. Maybe you haven't. The truth is that despite some setbacks, QUILLS is ready to rock and shock you. Come see a fantastic script. Come see some truly daring performances. Come see the show people are going to be talking about.
QUILLS features Doug Powers (Are You Being Served?) in his most ambitious role as the Marquis de Sade, Yours Truly (Our Country's Good) as the conflicted priest Coulmier, Kelsey Hanlon (The Crucible) as the guileless seamstress Madeleine, Jeff Lovell (Unexpected Tenderness) as the Draconian Dr. Royer-Collard, and Vicki Smith (Eighteen) as the Marquis' socialite wife. David Clark and Allison Leopold round out the cast with a scene that's sure to raise eyebrows . . .
So, I'll see you at the theatre. And go see all those other shows while you're at it. I won't get to see most of 'em.
