Baby, it's cold outside (but not inside...anymore)

During Tiny Kushner, our first show in the Thrust Stage after we entirely replaced the HVAC unit on the roof of the building, we had several audience complaints about the wintry temperature in certain parts of the theatre.

We were working at a fast and furious pace to get our settings in line with what our audience expects and deserves, when our crack team of internet monitors picked up on a blog that mentioned our theatre's name, somewhat in vain. A San Francisco artist came to the show and had a memorable experience, to say the least, which he mentioned his on his blog, a tale of a few cities.

He suggested a new design for our burgeoning gift shop:

Here's the front...

T-shirt 1
and here's the back...
T-shirt 2

After writing a note assuring him that we had indeed fixed the issues he was referring to, he graced us with an even better shirt idea, IMHO.

You'll have to visit his blog to see that design.

We always appreciate the feedback our audience members provide for us — especially in such creative ways as this.

Hilarious t shirt.. maybe you should get him to design one for your gift shop...
