Hey all. It's been a long time. Hope you're doing well. Some of us went out and saw a sneak peek of Max Langert's latest play "The Pact" at the Vortex. You may remember him from "Teacher, Teacher" or his many fantastic short plays in various Slapdash Flimflammeries.

In any case, we highly recommend it. It's dark. It's funny. If you like this page it's probably right up your alley.

THE PACT OPENS THIS WEEK! Grab your , grab your and get your today! https://sforce.co/3ePxktw
Next up on our "Meet the Cast" is Natalie D. Garcia (Nancy/Marketing Director): Natalie returns to the JP stage after a few years and is super jazzed to be working with Will again! Their previous JP collab was Significant Other in 2018. Natalie has had the pleasure of working with Bottle Alley, Different Stages, Street Corner Arts, Filigree Theater and is a ColdTowne regular with her improv duo Mike & Ike as well as her group Pylon. When she’s not onstage Natalie enjoys spending time with her lovely, supportive family.

The Plan 11/03/2015

If you've been following recent events you'll know that Austin is losing its arts spaces. You have an opportunity today to do something about it by voting in favor of the new Travis County Courthouse!

From their website:

"Public use space will be available for groups to rent out after hours. Talks are underway with local arts groups to possibly utilize this space for rehearsals or performances."
Marked public share and vote!

So come on out to the Off-Center tonight through Saturday at 8pm for what one of our dear friends of LGT described as "Kind of like Breaking Bad with the main characters replaced by Lucy and Ethel, with a live Metal band and a drone."
