Two nights of the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre On The Telly at the Edinburgh Fringe 2010 have already SOLD OUT! Look:
Don't worry. That just means the Fringe box office have sold their allocation, which means they've sold 82% of that night's tickets. There are some still up for grabs, but you'll need to go to the venue's own box office at: www.thevenuesownboxoffice.com
This is, I hope I need not add, a first. The Socks have never sold out in advance, and this year's sales are a good third up on last year's. The Socks have sold more tickets right now, two days before the start of the Fringe, than their predecessor The Sitcom Trials sold throughout their entire year (most years, probably all, I'd have to check). So let's hope the show is as good as I think it's going to be. We've just finished a fantastic tour of The Socks Go To Hollywood which is the funniest show ever (as the reviews and audiences attest) and it's a wrench to be doing a brand new show. But previews are getting there, so fingers crossed we might not do a show that sells out then gets tragically bad reviews and scuppers the rest of our career. Yes, that's the way to look at it.
