From IN Series Board Member, Larry Huffman:
All of the artists who work with IN Series are so fantastic that I consider it a privilege to be a part of their audience. There’s no way I can do what they do, but many have told me how much they appreciate my enjoyment of their work. To see how they have pivoted to all virtual performances during this emergency inspires me, knowing how important live contact is to them all.

Many of us continue to donate to the In Series in appreciation—and in the fond hope of an early return to the theater. Personally, we didn’t need the stimulus checks the government has sent, so I turned around and sent them to IN Series, which did need them. For me, it’s a down payment on all those future events, where I’ll watch great artists on the high wire, working without a net, hoping all of us out there in the dark will love it as much as we have in the past.
"Live performance is important to our mental health, and it will return. Donations just help it happen sooner, better, and with artists who aren't quite so thin."
The Greeks considered performance so important that everywhere they settled they built an amphitheater, and often an odeon for music. In evolutionary terms, that was five minutes ago; live performance is important to our mental health, and it will return. Donations just help it happen sooner, better, and with artists who aren’t quite so thin.
Thank you for your support!
