Dear Friend of PST, 
This is one of the most exciting things to happen to Lawrence ... the opportunity to perform his one-man show,  Shackleton's Antarctic Nightmare Off-Broadway!
We have a very loyal following out here in Oregon -- in fact, every time we do the Shackleton show, it sells out!  But we have no fan base in New York, except for family and a few old friends.
That's why we need your help to spread the word...
We know that you good people in New York and thereabouts may have already bought tickets (Yay!) and we are so happy that you did. Thanks!! We know that some of you who are in Portland have friends and family in New York City. We also know that most people decide to see a show because a friend told them about it.
So please, call up your friends and spread the word and send them this email about Lawrence's show at The United Solo Festival. Thanks so much, we really appreciate your support. 
3:30 PM on Wednesday, October 24th.
Yeah, it's a crazy-odd time to go to a show. But it was a once-in-a-lifetime chance and and it was a take-it-or-leave-it kind of a deal, so we took it! 
We've been sending press releases and stories and photos to the press, both here and in New York. Lawrence is featured in Broadway World and there's even a link to some videos on YouTube. Oregon Jewish Life ran a story in their September issue and he was also featured in The Portland Tribune and The Oregonian
Thanks for your support, and may the narrative be with you!

Hope to see you all in the Big Apple this October.

Shackleton's dream of crossing the Antarctic continent on foot became a nightmare when his valiant ship was trapped in the pack ice of the Weddell Sea and crushed by the pressure of the ice. The tale of how he and the 27 men of the British Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition survived on the ice floes and eventually came to safety is one that has fascinated Lawrence for as long as he can remember. Plus, this a story has special significance because he shared a life-long passion for the Shackleton story with his dad. And get this: Lawrence's 86 year old mother will be in the audience and will get to see him perform for the first time ever!
