Houston’s Alley Theatre has accepted our challenge that the Philadelphia Phillies will beat the Houston Astros in the World Series. The loser of the challenge will display the other theatre’s costumes in their lobby. Alley Theatre’s Managing Director Dean Gladden and the Walnut’s President and Producing Artistic Director Bernard Havard have known each other for over 30 years, but their relationship has taken a turn since our beloved Phillies made it to the World Series.
If Houston wins the World Series, the Walnut will display in its lobby a production photo of Alley Theatre’s sea creatures and a head piece of one of the costumes from their current production of Edward Albee’s Seascape, performing now through November 13. When Philadelphia wins (wink wink, nudge nudge), the Alley will display in their lobby the championship belt from the Walnut’s current production of ROCKY, the Musical, which is on stage NOW through November 6. Just like Rocky, the Walnut couldn’t resist a good underdog challenge!
