So began my journey with this remarkable show. And let’s face it - no trip is much fun without good traveling companions. Luckily, I have been blessed with the best: A remarkably gifted cast, an inspired design team, plus the tireless support offered by the Colony Theatre’s leadership and staff. My advice? Buckle your seat belts before Act One begins and hang on tight as Henry and Augusta take you on the ride of your life.

I am not a person who wants to say "Oh, I wish I had seen that." I am a subscription member at a number of organizations, including the LA Opera, the LA Master Chorale, the LA Phil, Music Center Dance, The Gay Men’s Chorus, East West Players, and YES, The Colony! I subscribe to them because I care deeply about their mission, but I also care about my own personal wellbeing. Nothing makes me feel better than to witness some of the wonderful productions I have seen in Los Angeles. I see around three events per week… I am a "culture vulture." Some of what I see is not good, some is fair…but then some of it is transformational, and I often wonder if I would have gone to see that performance if I was not a subscriber. Would I have chosen to see Grupo Corpo dance at the Music Center a few months ago? Probably not, but having seen it, I can say that it was one of the most exhilarating performances I have ever seen – and I would not have seen it if I were not a subscriber!
There is no question that I could have tickets to The Colony at no charge. But I believe in the work we do, and want to support it by being a part of our subscription family. During Moonlight and Magnolias, I sat in the lobby taking subscription renewal orders, and I got to chat with a number of you about your experiences at The Colony, and what this organization means to you. You understand that by being a part of The Colony, you get to see the likes of our Ovation Award-winning Beth Grant in Grace and Glorie, Hal Linden in our beautiful production of On Golden Pond, the amusingly touching Shooting Star, and our provoking Year Zero.
For those of you who are subscribers, I would like to invite you to share some of your favorite Colony memories. Over the course of the next season, and as we get closer to our 40th anniversary, we will be featuring several letters from our subscribers in the pages of our program, and we welcome your thoughts and comments. You may email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In January, we will announce our 38th season, and I know you
will want to renew, or become a new subscriber, because I don’t want you to say "Oh, I wish I had seen that."
