Today, Glyn and I went to a meeting to discuss our involvement in the gala performance that's set to launch the adaptation of the Broadway Cinema in Letchworth to a purpose-built theatre space.
This is something that's been on the cards for us for a couple of months now, since the venue's creative programmer got in touch to express interest in what we do, and in bringing Mostly Comedy to Letchworth - as well as obviously continuing our Hitchin dates - in the New Year. That, however, is part of the long game; initially, the theatre is concerned with putting together a memorable show to kick off their refurbishment, and to mark the 80th Anniversary of the cinema itself.
Today, the team assisting with production met to discuss ideas and pool contacts. We've already booked two high profile comics to be part of our chunk of the show, which will hopefully give a flavour of what Mostly Comedy is about, should it become part of the theatre's programme. Outside of that, there are a lot of big names and grand ideas that will be amongst the night's line-up; today was just a chance for us all to meet and to touch base as to what the whole thing will be about.
It should be good, as there's a lot of talent involved (with us making up the numbers). It will be nice to be a part of it. We also got a free lunch out of it today, which was not to be sniffed at.
