Bedbugs!!! closed its critically acclaimed, nearly sold-out run at the Arclight Theatre this past Sunday, Nov. 2nd. This closing is especially bittersweet. I am so proud of this production and the work we've all put into it. Not gonna lie, my heart is aching just a bit.
I'm so grateful to have had this incredible opportunity to create so many exciting characters within such a unique piece of theatre. The creative team was top notch and the cast was just mind blowing. It's ever so rare to say that you've worked on something where every single person involved was on the same wavelength and added something valuable to the production. This is when magic is made. And every single person who saw Bedbugs witnessed that.
Closing was emotional. Tears were flowing faster than bugspray. But it didn't feel like an ending… Hopefully my gut is right and the show gets picked up and moved to a bigger, better, buggier space.
Til then, sleep tight… don't let the Bedbugs bite.
