New Client: Mike Thornton and I have partnered for years bringing The Capitol Steps to Western Massachusetts. He's asked me to help market and promote his Brattleboro (VT) show, which also gives me an opportunity to partner with Michael Kusek at Communication Angle. Here's the scoop on the performance.
CAPITOL STEPS TO PERFORM AT BRATTLEBORO'S LATCHIS THEATRE ON SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2008. VERMONT APPEARANCE PART OF THE 2008 CAMPAIGN AND SUFFERING TOUR
