ALICE IN SLASHERLAND: Sold Out!

That's right, Vamp Fans! For the third straight year, you've once again completely sold out the ENTIRE RUN of another Vampire Cowboys show! And I have to say that I am feeling absolutely overwhelmed and moved by your continued support and love for the work we’ve been doing. In our short history, you’ve sold out performance after performance of our productions including last season’s Off-Broadway run of “Soul Samurai”, “Fight Girl Battle World”, “Living Dead in Denmark”, “Vampire Cowboy Trilogy”, and now “Alice in Slasherland”. I can truly say that all of us here at Vampire Cowboys appreciates each and every one of you. Thank you, VC Nation, for allowing us to entertain you. Thank you for giving us a home in New York theatre. And personally I want to also thank you immensely for allowing my voice as a playwright to be heard. You’ve allowed me and my company to write and create shows the way we’ve always wanted to make them regardless of our race, age, experience, sex, or sexual preference. Each time you sit in our houses, you prove that an audience will in fact, not just accept, but be hungry to see an artist-of-color (like myself and many of our actors) do work that doesn’t just center on our ethnicity, that when done correctly theatre can attract a sizable younger geekier tech-savvy mainstream audience, and that nontraditional theatre audience will in fact cheer for a Black, Asian, Latino, Gay/Lesbian, Transgendered, or female superhero without the story having to draw attention to or making a political or social issue out of the matter. To some, that's pretty revolutionary. It's, as they say, "a big fuckin' deal". And who knows, maybe one day with all of you at our side, we'll be able to bring this VC brand of entertainment to a much larger audience through new mediums and grander productions (Or, at least, have enough money to extend a show for once). I won’t say that we’re the only company out there trying to do this (I always hate it when folks claim they’re the first or only group doing something when those kinds of assertions are rarely ever true), but I will say that your support of Vampire Cowboys does prove that this kind of work is not only wanted or needed in entertainment, but that it can also be quite successful and have a strong and loyal following. Thank you. It’s inspiring and humbling to know that you have our back. We love you all, whether you’re new to VC Nation or have been with us since the very beginning, YOU are the heart and soul of Vampire Cowboys. And we are honored to have your asses in our seats.

Now as for all you procrastinators out there that didn’t end up getting your tickets in time (And I'm not saying that with any kinda hate cause I've definitely been guilty in waiting until the last minute too), if you still haven't seen the show and still wanna find a way to squeeze into the theatre, the box office opens at 4pm at Here Arts Center. You can go by and put your name on the daily wait-list. We always have a handful of house seats (seats we hold in case of emergency) that we release to be sold on the day of the performance. It's first come, first serve. So don't give up just yet, young Jedi, you still can get your geek on with the undead wranglers! You just gotta do it old school style by waiting in line. Much love to you all! You mean the world to us. Truly.
