No Uncomfortable Mattresses at the Once Upon A Mattress After Party

No Uncomfortable Mattresses at the Once Upon A Mattress After Party

I didn’t see anybody sleeping at this party, although I did spot a few couples cozying up to one another as they celebrated the opening night of Once Upon A Mattress. It was a unique if not predictable place to hold the festivities. Jackie Hoffman was definitely not shy and showed up in pajamas at Hastens Luxury Mattress Store and I won’t be shy in telling you how much fun this show is. I didn’t even have to bring “My Pillow” to the Abrons Arts Center where this Transport Group Theatre Company’s production is playing. The seats are really comfortable.
