Sure, it was hardly surprising that Greystones – long-starved of a theatre – would form an orderly queue early this morning for those Al Porter tickets.
The first ticket release of the official autumn launch schedule for The Whale, the mildly outrageous (is that a thing?) Porter proved incredibly popular.
Tickets sold out faster than you could quip, “Shut that door!“.
Al had requested that only attractive people be allowed in to his Saturday, September 16th Greystones show, but, due to the morning sun shining directly into the eyes of The Whale box-office’s supremo, Grace Barry, a handful of fuglies managed to slip through the net.
So, there may be scuffles at the door on the big night. There’s also, of course, always a chance of cancellations, with a few unsuccessful Porter fans today leaving their details with Grace. If you’re looking for tickets too, add your name and contact details below, and we’ll let you know…
We should take a moment too to welcome Grace Barry to The Whale, fresh from looking after the likes of The Soho Theatre in London and The Pleasance in Edinburgh, and clearly ready to whip Greystones’ shiny new theatre into shape. Which is handy, given that rather large autumn schedule of shows about to be unleashed in the first week of September, featuring everything from big-name stars, local theatre groups, freak shows, charity gala nights, Greystones Film Club specials, puppet shows, and, well, a whole, great big circus of fun.
So, you know, watch this space. We’re all about to go into the belly of The Whale, and Greystones will never be the same again. All going well…
