Happy Monday! I know you all saw my post about the play “Boxes” coming to DC in a few weeks! Well, to get in on the action BEFORE the play comes to theaters, take a look at what’s happening this weekend. If you’re in the DMV, you should definitely come out! 🙂
In order to generate a buzz about “BOXES”, we are planning a Flash Mob for Saturday Nov 20 from 11am – 1:30pm. Please plan to attend/participate and, most importantly, enlist the help of your friends/family/colleagues. Details on the event are outlined below.
**All Participants will be Volunteers**
To generate curiosity and excitement about the upcoming play BOXES. To film videos of the Flash Mob and circulate on the web.
Saturday November 20 from 11am – 1:30pm
We will hit several locations, spending about 10 minutes at each stop. Participants can drive themselves from one stop to the next or use transportation provided by BOXES crew. We will start at Eastern Market then proceed to Dupont Circle, P st Whole Foods, Columbia Heights Shopping Plaza, and the Portrait Gallery in China Town.
The first stop is Eastern Market. Participants should gather at (6th & C SE DC) at 10:45am.
A large crowd of BRIDES will appear to attend an auction of an eligible BACHELOR. The BACHELOR will be auctioned off by his MOTHER. Women playing BRIDES will wear their own wedding dresses, white dresses, or white suits. BRIDES must bring their own white clothing and will be provided with veils, tiaras, and bridal bouquets. The BACHELOR and MOTHER will be played by members of the BOXES cast. BRIDES will shout phrases to the MOTHER to determine if the BACHELOR is a good catch, such as:
– Can he fix anything?
– Is he good with children?
– Does he have a job?
– How old is he?
– How much money does he make?
– Will he watch romance comedy’s with me?
– Will he expect me to cook every day?
(Additional phrases/questions will be provided to participants, however you are free to make up your own as well! PLEASE do not yell inappropriate or overtly sexual remarks.)
