The Red Boat Productions website is live

There’s a new source for all your Enter Love news. We’re going to be posting announcements about the show over at the Red Boat Productions website. What can you expect to see over there? Mostly updates about how the show is spreading like a virus and taking over the American musical theatre landscape.

Announcing the Red Boat Board of Directors

We just realized that we never made any formal announcement about Red Boat’s Board of Directors. These folks bring together a wide range of talents, contacts, and expertise – which they are applying toward getting Enter Love back on stage in front of more audiences. All of them are committed to expanding Red Boat, and of course all are big fans of this show.

2011 is almost here

Clearly 2010 was a breakout year for Enter Love. We had a world premiere that sold out every show before opening night. We met with excellent reviews. We’ve gotten a ton of feedback from industry professionals telling us this show has legs. In the months after our opening run we’ve continually attracted more and more talented people who want to support this production every day.

The kicker? Next year promises to be even more exciting. What can you expect to hear about?

  • more performances in more cities
  • more behind the scenes glimpses into how a show like this comes together
  • more special promotions
  • more Enter Love swag
  • and more insights from the creators of the show

A big thank you

Did you know Enter Love has a production company behind it? The name isn’t nearly as famous as Enter Love, but the organization responsible for producing the show is Red Boat Productions. Our advisory board met last week to discuss what’s going on with the show and what’s going to be happening in 2011.

As everyone was getting up to speed on all the happenings since the Lafayette run, we realized that we have a lot to be thankful for. Enter Love’s journey from the piano in Lynn’s home to the stage is far faster than any of us could have imagined. There’s every indication that the next year is going to be even wilder and faster.

All of that is possible because of the people that have touched this show. Too many people to ever name have played a part in breathing life into a few pieces of paper with notes and words on them, but know that if you are reading this than you are most certainly one of them.

From Lynn and all of us at Red Boat,

Thanks.

Something for everyone nice (or naughty) on your list

With the holiday season just around the corner, you may be scratching your head wondering what to get a few people on your list. Admittedly we’re biased, but we think a CD or DVD of Enter Love is the perfect gift for the music lovers in your life.

The Lodge did the audio recording for the CD and JacKlink Productions shot and edited the performance video and special features on the DVD. At $10 for the CD and $20 for the DVD, these gifts are thoughtful, unique, and affordable. Full details over at the order page.

We’re making Enter Love even better

Now that we’ve had a chance to see the show on stage, we’re sanding down the rough edges and adding a little polish. Don’t worry, the songs and characters that you love are still there. The production team is just taking this opportunity to give the show a tune up.

If you’ve already seen the show there will be a few new wrinkles we think you’ll like. If you’re brand new to Enter Love, then we’ve made the music and the story even easier to fall in love with.

No rest for the weary… and we love it!

Whew! We’re still catching our breath from a fantastic summer that led up to a great run in August. Lafayette was a fantastic place to premiere this show. Everyone had a blast.

So we took a few weeks off to enjoy our success, but now we’re getting excited about where Enter Love is headed next. We’ve already begun meeting to talk about what we’ve learned from our first run and how we can add some tweaks here and there to make the show even better.

As the details about future performances of Enter Love get nailed down, you’ll find them here. You won’t want to miss it.

What’s Next?

After the phenomenal success of the world premiere run of Enter Love: A Musical For Our Times (every show sold out) it’s probably not very surprising that the Lafayette run is not the last the world has seen of these characters and their songs.

So what is next? Let’s just say if you weren’t able to get tickets to this show, you will have more opportunities. When? Where? We’ll be posting more information here on this site as the details get ironed out.

Anywhere and everywhere Enter Love goes after this was made possible by the success of this world premiere. Naturally the success is due in part to the cast, musicians, technicians, and patrons that helped put this show on the stage – but all that effort by itself isn’t enough to make a hit.

This success is as much because of everyone who came to see the show, did a press story, talked to your friends about it, ordered a CD/DVD, and visited this website. :)

Thank You!

Extra chance to catch the show

After the show yesterday, we were scratching our heads trying to figure out what to do about all the people that wanted to see the show, but weren’t able to get tickets. We had sold every ticket for the entire run of the show before opening night!
