Noises Off - October 2017 Newsletter
Welcome to the first edition of Noises Off, Pit and Balcony’s newsletter. In the theatre “noises off” is a stage direction meaning sounds made offstage intended for the ears of the audience.

The hit Broadway musical “Hairspray” kicked off Pit and Balcony’s 84th season. Under the direction of Tommy Wedge, this is a larger than life musical has been dazzling and inspiring audience members to dance right out of their seats since it opened on the Great White Way in 2002. With music and lyrics by the award winning pair, Marc Shaiman and Scott Whittman, “Hairspray” is a joyful and talented performance not to be missed.
