Getting the right mix of teaser content and enough to make people want to buy a ticket is a delicate balancing act.
The Abbey Theatre has released a short video of the first full company read through of their next production ‘Let the Right One in’ which captures the mood with a blend of behind the scenes footage, some great lines from cast and crew and a whimsical little musical backdrop that is in contrast to the line ‘There is blood, There are jump out of your seat moments of horror.’
The short video was released yesterday ahead of the opening night on November 18th.
It is hosted on YouTube and is being shared via the Abbey Theatre website and its social media channels.
