  • Discussed merits of 3C2C, New Directors, and Week in the Space. Voting on favorite 2 out of 3, board was almost unanimously in favor of 3C2C; second place Week in the Space, and last: New Directors.
  • Immer proposed do 3C2C first semester in the Downstairs Space, New Directors second semester in the Upspace, and Week in the Space second semester in the Dowstairs Space.
  • Think about how to attract actors (and directors!) to New Directors. (Change the name?)

  • Voted unanimously in favor of having 3rd slot before Thanksgiving and MF right before finals (the same weekend as Brownbrokers)
  • Michael will email out the calendar we chose.
  • Would be great to figure out a way so that people in chorus could also be in MF. . . hmmmm
  • Drumsta will talk to Cobab soon and Immer will give them a list of possible weekend concert dates for the fall.


  • we should have a minimum of 120 seats
  • How to encourage new audiences?
  • How to be more accesible to our audience?

Discussed problems with currents reserve system:

  • PM's need to be more vigilant about cast and crew reserves.
  • Are Brown students getting tickets that way? Perhaps require actual names.
  • Unfair to put waitlist from Saturday 8 pm show first on wait list of Saturday midnight show.
  • Should we continue to allow other casts to reserve blocks of tickets for PW shows? Feeding into exclusiviting. . .
  • Community members can't get tickets.
  • Solution proposed by Immer: Let Reserve Person be a semester-long job. Board in favor. Job is Perlman's. He will formulate something over spring break and this will start with Balloon.

Tuesday night, board, be at PW by 11:30 pm. Dress up.

New members subcommittee = Gayle, Tess and Garland


Garland - Jesse Chan-Norris (former PW board member) will be visiting on Thursday and would like to see the space. Dov or Gayle (or someone) will show him around.

Immer - Let's tell ADOCH no, we're not going to have a latenight activity.

Tess - had a long conversation with a security guard about theater. Thinks we should have a non-weekly PW newsletter that just publicizes shows
Next activities fair: 2 lists: our email list and the “I promise I never want to help out but would like to come see theater” list

Let's have a meeting to talk about exclusivity, accessibility, keys, etc.
Tuesday, March 23 at 11 pm at Adam's: Vision of PW

the PW board is: Matt Biagini, Maya Bruhns, Emily Drumsta, Vanessa Gonzalez, Adam Griska, Adam Immerwahr, Tess Lantos, Dov Lebowitz-Nowak, Gayle Macdonald, Garland McQuinn, Blair Nelsen, Michael Perlman, Rebecca Rouse, Jessica Wilson and Reese Smith (on leave).
