A small group of friends of mine had decided to wait for tkts outside The Public and I went down there to meet them when I got off of work just to say hello. I had no intentions of sleeping out on the sidewalk overnight to get tkts yet there I was in my work clothes sitting on the sidewalk until the next morning. As for the production itself, I absolutely loved it. Talk about event theatre! That production and experience hold such a special place in my heart--a few weeks later everything was changed by 9/11. That production of The Seagull exists as a bookmark in my memory as the last "before"; it was just one of those magical NYC days/nights.
