Would there happen to be another night available, perhaps in another city? I would love to attend, but I am teaching my education class on that evening at a local NYC college (St. John's U.) where I usually show the Operation Respect "Don't laugh at me" video for my classes. Thank you.

Hi Elizabeth! How nice of you to ask! Right now, there are no other performances scheduled (though the hope is to get enough support to run it off-Broadway and in "workshop" form throughout schools. Can you bring your St. John's class on March 19th??!! They qualify for the "Student" rate...:-)
What ages would this event be appropriate for? Or, on the contrary, is it geared more towards adult educators?
Hi! 9th grade and up is the appropriate audience, as we're aiming to reflect a candid high school experience. Further to that, we feel it is definitely appropriate for adult educators. There is some harsh language and there are moderate sexual references - what we would compare to a PG-13 movie. If you need more details, please feel free to email us at email@example.com. Thanks! We hope to see you there!
I run a program for 9-12 graders...is this appropriate to bring them to? How many tickets would I be able to reserve? Thanks, Shannon
Hi Shannon - thanks for writing! Yes, this is appropriate starting at 9th grade. There is some harsh language, moderate sexual references, and - of course - the topic itself contains heavy subject matter. We aim to be very respectful of highschool students' candid experiences, and so we feel a lot of censorship would not do them justice. You can buy as many "Student" rate tickets as you like! If you're not sure how many you'll need, you can let me know a ballpark, and I'll keep them reserved through Monday - does that help? Or if you have any further needs or questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'd be happy to help! Cheers! -Molly
