“In a word, we’re overwhelmed,” said Executive Director Diana Brown in an emailed statement. “To see this kind of response from the global theatre community is really something special. We’re so protective of our reputation as a festival that treats its artists well, that’s worth it for touring artists to visit, and we love how that enables us to bring such diverse, incredible talent to Atlanta. And we’re still having fun with it, still adding new features, so that even people who have been with us since Year Once will find something new to enjoy at the festival.”
