Scenes from Edward II rehearsal

Our Open Rehearsal for Edward II was Saturday, February 11 at the Charlestown Working Theater. A terrific group of people from all over the metro area braved the slippery roads and freezing temperatures to get a sneak peek into our rehearsal process, the set, and other elements of the production.

 

Local author and Open Rehearsal guest Molly Booth posted on Instagram: “Loved attending @aspboston’s open rehearsal for Christopher Marlowe’s EDWARD II this morning! Felt right at home in this theatre — I worked in a firehouse-turned-theater all through high school. Get your tickets now, this show is going to be awesome!”

 

Thanks, Molly, we totally agree! Get your tickets today!
