The New Colony upsizes Calls to Blood
In an unusual move for a very small theater company, the New Colony is transferring its current production, the new James Asmus play Calls to Blood, midway through its run. What's more, the company's transferring within the same building. Demand for tickets has been strong enough over the last two weeks in the Royal George's 50-seat upstairs Gallery space that TNC is confident enough to pack up and head downstairs, into the 180-seat Cabaret space, starting Thursday 29. If the show's as well executed as it sounds—I haven't seen it yet, but you can read John Beer's review—perhaps the extra seats are needed to accommodate repeat viewings; in the company's equally unique ticketing scheme, a single ticket purchase allows for unlimited attendance. Calls to Blood runs through November 7.
