“When I heard that we were going to be in the library, I felt, and there might be some T2 subscribers or people in the community that that may feel similarly, a little disappointed,” admits actor Drew Johnson of the unique production of “Matilda the Musical” at the Fayetteville Public Library. “To be a part of ‘Shakespeare in Love’ and opening that [new] space — I love that theater. I loved getting to work in that theater, and I was a little sad I wasn’t going to be working there [again]. And I felt that way all the way up until two days ago, when we walked into the library and saw the space for the first time. It really is amazing — the library has done a great job building this facility, and I think that the T2 team has done an incredible job of transforming this space as well. Do not be disappointed, be excited, because this is actually a wonderful new facility for this theater.” (Courtesy Photo/Wesley Hitt for T2)
