MSIM hits The Wire!

In another great media moment, Annah Todd wrote an incredible article about ACT ONE’s production of Make Sure It’s Me for this week’s issue of The Wire. Read it here! And, if you missed our interview on NHPR’s Word of Mouth, you can listen to it here.

Our final rehearsals have been awe-inspiring, as we moved into WEST and the actors claimed the space. In spite of the seriousness of our message about the prevalence of TBI in our veterans, there has been a lot of laughter and real pleasure in our accomplishments. We’ve all felt the production pull together after so many months of research, outreach, and rehearsal. I, personally, am so proud of our whole creative team and honored to put our work before audiences when we open tomorrow. As always, thanks to our sponsors, consultants, and myriad supporters throughout the process.
