According to the registration page, the link will be sent before 11/19. There is no indication as to when the link will be sent, but I will keep an eye out for it and I will let you know when I get my link, as I too registered to see it. Although you might well imagine that I'll be watching it on Friday, 11/19 at Noon.
Did you already see the show on stage pre-pandemic or a Zoom presentation during the past 18 months? I invite you to watch it again, as it is revised and updated. This performance was filmed at StageWerx Theater in San Francisco, so if you watched on zoom all you saw was a talking head on a rectangular screen.
For anyone who is fully vaccinated and comfortable with small gatherings, please consider hosting a watch party with a handful of friends.
Your support has meant so much to me. Please help spread the word, tell your friends about it.
Money-back guarantee that it will be an hour well-spent.
