Staging Magic with Ashleigh Tucker Pollock Interviews

Staging Magic with Ashleigh Tucker Pollock

This past month, as you may have noticed, I’ve been on an interview kick here on the blog. It takes me back to my high school newspaper days. Anyway, now that I’ve digressed, or regressed, I love a good interview and this week, I caught up with Ashleigh Tucker Pollock, our Special Events Manager & Rental Coordinator. I get the pleasure of working on a lot of projects with Ashleigh and wanted to learn more about how she creates amazing theme parties, what her design inspirations are, and what her good luck charm is (not to spoil the interview but it turns out, I am, mostly because I’m on the Gala committee but I’ll take it). Check out our interview and make sure to get your tickets for this year’s Gala, An Affair to Remember coming to the Historic Theater’s stage on Saturday, February 11. Read More Read More
Becoming Wise With Krista Tippett Explore and Learn

Becoming Wise With Krista Tippett

I have a confession, I am not a public radio listener. I know, I know, I missing out on a lot of great content, but I just don’t listen to the radio. So in December, when our Writers on a New England Stage producer Margaret Talcott told me that we had booked Krista Tippett, I didn’t understand just how cool it was. After talking to Monte (Director of Marketing and my NPR authority), I took to Google. After reading through several interviews with her and listening to a couple of her podcasts, I was blown away. If you’re like me, and you’ve yet to discover Krista, check out my interview and get your ticket to see her at our Historic Theater on Thursday, March 2. Read More Read More
Cooking up Music Hall Magic Interviews

Cooking up Music Hall Magic

Part of my role in the Marketing Department is that I sit on the Gala Committee. It’s a really fun committee to be a part of, each year we get to brainstorm a theme and then watch it come to life with the help of some amazingly talented people. In the next couple of weeks, I’m going to be introducing you to some of these magic makers who seamlessly carry out the vision of the committee year after year. If you have yet to join us at a Music Hall Gala, it’s a themed party that takes place on stage at the Historic Theater. In past years, we transformed into a prohibition era speakeasy and a 1940s Officer Club, this year will be an “Affair to Remember” on Saturday, February 11, 2017 as we invite you to our mid-century modern cocktail party straight out of Mad Men.
