Four Stars for SEEDS!!

March 8th, 2013 donnahoke

Opening nights are weird. It’s hard to gauge people’s reactions. Nobody quite knows what to say to you. And even when somebody says something positive, you’re never really sure if they mean it. Nonetheless, opening night parties are fun, and the SEEDS party at Bacchus was no exception. 

We no longer live in an era where we wait at the party until the reviews come out, so it was an anxious week, but we were rewarded with a wonderful four-star review a week later:

Donna Hoke plants insightful ideas with SEEDS.

This play has truly been a collaborative effort, and a wonderful experience. Week two began last night already; I’m going to be sorry to see this one end. Thank you to everyone who supported it.
