Mermaids, Musto, and More!

Reports that today's earthquake was caused by a rush of people CLAMoring for tickets to the three remaining performances of THE AVERAGE-SIZED MERMAID have been slightly exaggMERated (although not by much. Reports that we're referring to the event as MERthquake 2011, however, are completely true).

But in all honesty, tickets are going fast, so be sure to buy yours before you miss the comedy that Michael Musto of The Village Voice describes as "a clever romp!"

And that's not all; author Edward Lazellari posted a wonderful review on his blog! Lazellari writes that "The Average-Sized Mermaid stands apart" from all the other FringeNYC shows he's seen this year and goes on to say that the "opening monologue alone is worth the price of admission." Wow! Click here to check out the review in its entirety!

Also, it looks like Lazellari's debut novel, "Awakenings," will be released on August 30th by Tor Books. Since he clearly has excellent taste, we'll definitely be checking it out, and you probably should as well!

And somehow we neglected to mention that playwright Jessica Fleitman was interviewed by novelist and mermaid-enthusiast Carolyn Turgeon about THE AVERAGE-SIZED MERMAID on Turgeon's mermaid blog!

In other MERMAID-related news, we had a pick-up reMERsal yesterday. There was definitely something special about having the mer-family back in the rehearsal room one last time, but of course nothing compares to performing the show in front of an audience!

Thanks again to all of the support-mers who've come out to SEA us so far! We can't wait to share the tail-end of the run with the rest of you!
