My First Visit


Program Cover of Troilus and Cressida by William Shakespeare

I first visited The Players in 2011 when an acquaintance of mine invited me for drinks. Unaware it even existed, I was thinking about joining the National Arts Club next-door. But when I walked into the townhouse at 16 Gramercy Park South, something happened - call it magical, call it spiritual, call it ghosts, but I was overwhelmed by an inexplicable sense of belonging. As I was touring the house and learning about the history, I felt a profound connection - a home away from home. That visit to The Players was the beginning of a new chapter in my life. Little did I know that acquaintance would become my husband, Jeffrey Hardy, and The Players would become our family.
