Rejected Title: The Touring Schedule For Which You’ve All Been Waiting

Reason for Rejection of Rejected Title: Whilst more characteristic of myself and my speaking patterns, correct English strips this particular phrase of its resonance with the phrase “the moment you’ve all been waiting for,” made popular by decades people forced with the task of introducing an object that may or may not be actually exciting.  

Rather than individually telling each of the kind but numerically overwhelming  people who have been asking me about our touring schedule, I am going to post the information as it stands right now on the blog. Then, when we add more shows, I can just post that new information here. Ideally.

There are obviously a number of gaps; not all of those may be filled in, as some are actually scheduled days for travel or days off.

 I will now host a brief Question and Answer session.

Q. Is this information available anywhere else?

A. Yes.

Q. (long pause) Where?

A. I thought you’d never ask. You can find it here on the American Shakespeare Center’s website.

Q. May I ask why you typed it out when the same information was available with much spiffier design?

A. You certainly may. The website does not currently have all the information posted. We obviously don’t have the full schedule yet, either, but the paper one that we were given has more dates on it than the one you see on the website.

Q. Ah yes. I see here it also lists which play you will be doing at each venue. Do you know which plays you’ll be doing at the venues that are not on their website?

A. No.

Q. Is this very popular play abbreviated by ‘TBA’ ‘The Beard of Avon’?

A. No, that is Shakespeare’s lost work ‘The Tragedy of Baron Anselme,’ alternating with ‘The Bawdy Alewives,’ by Robert Greene.

Q. (skeptically) I’ve not heard of either of those.

A. Is that a question?

Q. Is that an answer?

A. Touche. (small pause) So, I’m hungry. What are you going to do for dinner?

Q. Oh, I don’t know. A quick stir-fry maybe.
