Read an excerpt from “Don’t You F**king Say a Word” in the new issue of Racquet Magazine, a wonderful new print-only magazine. I’m so pleased to have been included in this terrific publication.
Don’t You F**king Say a Word by the numbers:
*Number of performances: 28
*Audience attendance: over 2,000 (We ran at over 80% capacity)
*Post-show panels: 7, including events with Racquet Magazine, and also with Gelf Magazine, featuring Patrick McEnroe.
*Number of times the phrase “Don’t You Fucking Say a Word” was said on stage: 168 (6 times a performance)
*Artist Salaries and fees account for over 40% of our show budget. Compensating artists fairly for their time and talent is our top priority.
