Each Afterglow has been more successful than the previous one. We measure success in sales. And despite presenting many unknown artists, our sales per show were the highest ever. This means our curation is trusted and successful. Success is seen, too, in increased press. An entire segment of Open Studio on WGBH was dedicated to our work, added to features in Boston Globe, Boston Herald, Cape Cod Times, Playbill, The Huffington Post, The Dig, Edge, Boston Spirit,. Success is measured in increased awareness and attendance and in the uptick uptick in local audience and sponsorship. Collaborations with the Public Theater and American Repertory Theater mean more scope and renown. As works premiered and developed by Afterglow move to other stages—from Off-Broadway to London’s Soho Theater and beyond, our program credits are duly noted. More grants and sponsorships spell success: The Newlson Trust and the Mass Cultural Council continued their support along with successful artists and entertainment figures like Jim Hodges, Alan Poul, Mary Birdsong and David Bowd & Kevin O’Shea. Success is more artists seeking participation; and raising more money for other charitable causes via collaboration. Success is in the growth of subscribers and in the expansion of social media. Success derives from strangers in around the world showing support and visiting Provincetown during festival.
