Dear PTC Patrons,
The power of The Mountaintop lies within the core of its story, and we have committed to bring you that story through the beautiful and masterful words of Katori Hall, performed with eloquence and passion by our two actors, Sekou Laidlow and Amirah Vann, and staged by the immensely talented director, Patricia McGregor.
As some of you may be aware, PTC is currently in the midst of contract negotiations with IATSE Local 8, representing our stagehand employees. After only a few short weeks of productive and professional negotiations, the stagehands walked off the job one week ago. PTC has not replaced these workers, and we continue our commitment to reaching a fair and reasonable agreement with the union as quickly as possible.
At our preview performances thus far, audiences are seeing a version of our production with reduced theatrical effects that is fully-staged, on a set with complete costumes and brilliant performances by our actors. We are pleased to report that we have been playing to full and enthusiastic audiences each night. Our number one priority at PTC is to stay true to our mission and to tell this important story with the artistic integrity and quality you’ve come to expect from us.
Performances will continue as originally scheduled, including all pre-and-post-show talks and events. We look forward to greeting you at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre very soon.
Thank you for your ongoing support of Philadelphia Theatre Company.
