Last spring, Emmy nominee Timothy Olyphant starred in our world premiere of Hold on to Me Darling by Kenneth Lonergan which went on to be nominated for several awards, including the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play.
This holiday season he reflects on what makes Atlantic special to him:
here’s what i know.
good theater is magical. i don’t know why. i only know that it’s true. and the atlantic does tons of good theater. these are facts.
here’s another fact — it needs support. the atlantic theater company needs support from people like you.
how much i don’t know. i’m just an actor. i don’t know the details. but, in my opinion, if you’re getting this letter then you should support the atlantic theater company — as i do — to ensure that those amazing productions they’re so well known for can continue.
i’ve had the great fortune of doing two plays at the atlantic. one nearly twenty years ago. the other just last year. i’m still not clear why they waited so long to ask me back. but i digress.
i can tell you from experience, the hard work and dedication and skill that goes into an atlantic theater company production is awe inspiring. that’s why the plays you and i have seen there over the years have been so consistently good. the last play i saw there was skeleton crew. did you see it? it was ridiculously good. so good, it was magical.
and the atlantic theater company does tons of good theater.
please join me in supporting it. give as generously as you can.
