DC premiere of "Marvin's Trial"

Denied the love of his father, Marvin Gaye won it from an adoring public.  He left his Washington, DC home, became a legend, and changed the world with his music.
Marvin’s Trial is a uniquely human portrayal of the life and death of the Motown superstar.  This new stage fiction spans half a century and two continents – exploring Marvin’s experiences with love, jealousy, abuse, and ambition.  It is a rich theatrical portrait of a man who endured struggles – with family, with music, and with fame – and who paid a tragic price for everything that he earned.

Tickets are $15, at[masked].

    I'm printing seat-signs for us today. When you get to THEARC, look for a secion of seats labeled "Broadway Bound" and the Meetup logo. Looks like 7 of us right now, I'll print a few extras just in case there are any more RSVPs between now and Saturday.

    If you haven't already ordered tickets, make sure you do it soon. The performance may sell out.

    See you all there!

    See you there!

    Max, could you arrange for everyone to know where to meet, where to sit, etc.. so they can meet you and also each other. Thanks

    Hello all! I would be happy to serve as the event coordinator. Once we have a final count of attendees (and I'll be able to verify this against ticket sales), I will mark off a section of seats in the auditorium so that everyone can sit together.

    Who put this on the calendar; someone needs to be in charge, otherwise people will just go and sit by themselves and not enjoy meeting the others in the group.

    Darlene, I am not the event coordinator. I just signed up. Shari

    Shari, I assume that this is your suggestion. I will make you a Event Leader for this event, so that you can better coordinate with the others interested in attending. Suggest that you send them all your cell phone so that they can find you. Thanks for putting this on the calendar. Darlene
