at Flynn MainStage
Who hasn’t dreamed of something more? The hit Broadway play Waitress follows Jenna, a small-town server and pie maker who longs to shake things up when a local baking contest — and a new love interest — present fresh opportunities. Propelled by original music and lyrics by pop singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles and a book by screenwriter Jessie Nelson, the Tony Award-nominated play serves up equal parts humor and heart. Actor Bailey McCall plays the lead in the touring production of the show that the Hollywood Reporter calls “a musical that speaks to anyone who has ever yearned to escape the drudgery of everyday life.”

- Traffic/Street Signs: NON Stop Sign
I am the owner and occupant of 18 Adsit Court and have been living at this address for almost two decades. Over the years, I've seen the sidewalk plow either tear up my yard in an attempt to avoid the no parking sign or take out the no parking sign altogether. This occurs because the sidewalk plow is wider than the sidewalk. I thought the city had given up replacing the signs, but now it looks like you plan on putting up a new sign - someone from DPW hammered in a post about a foot from where the old sign was (notice the metal at the right in the dirt) probably as an indicator of where the new sign should go.
If you really feel you must install a new sign, please place the new sign closer to the road. Where you have the wood post is closer to the sidewalk than the previous sign was located. If the new sign were to be placed where that wood post is, the odds of both property damage and sign damage by the sidewalk plow will increase.
Also, the sign up the street in front of 26 Adsit was taken out by the sidewalk plow a winter or two ago

I didn’t hire you to come here and lie! That’s a true note. I signed it. I’ll pay it.… What I employed you for was to get this business put over to the next court — not come here and lie and juggle about it!
