Compliment - War Bonds: Janesville, Wisconsin

April 26, 2011

Dear David and Serena,

As I said, [War Bonds] was pretty much a perfect project in my opinion. Coming from an arts education background, my favorite projects are those that teach without patrons realizing it. It’s even better with people sharing their personal stories. I learned so much about my own family’s history because of this show. A perfectly beautiful day.

I’d be happy to have you back in the future and am willing to provide references to encourage others to book you as well.

Wrights of Passage Statistics by Stephen Wall

I thought I would just share that I had the chance the other night to look back over our many shows, and by my count our last performance of "Wrights of Passage" in Shelton, Washington was our 250th performance! I would imagine we have performed this show for well over 100,000 people by this point.

Other fascinating trivia, is that we have performed the show in 42 NC counties (out of 100), plus, of course, shows in SC, NJ, OH and WA. Also, Wake County still holds the lead with 30 performances, but Davie placed a strong second with 21 performances. Orange was third with 18 performances, with Clark County, Ohio and Cleveland County, NC completing the top 5 with 13 performances each.

Well, just thought I would share, since we are occasionally asked about the number of times we have done the shows during our Q&As.

Again, I trust that all is well, and I hope to see you soon.

Compliment - Jones County, NC: Our Past, Our Present, Our Future

Thank you so much for all your dedication to the project at Jones County Senior High School.
Last night truly exhibited a successful culmination  of this step of the project.
Your talent and expertise is so evident in the outcomes of your projects I have viewed.
Serena, I wish you could see my body language now. It would prove that I tell the truth.
Hopefully we can continue a working relationship in Jones County.
