An actress who tweeted tearfully that only one person showed up to see her play at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe performed to an almost sold-out crowd the following day, after celebrities rushed to console her on social media.
After performing her play “Sunsets” at The Gilded Balloon in the Scottish capital on Thursday, Georgie Grier tweeted: “There was one person in my audience today when I performed my one woman play, ‘Sunsets’ at #edfringe.
The tweet, which has now accumulated more than 6 million views, prompted an outpouring of solidarity from celebrities and members of the public alike.
“We’ve ALL done it,” replied Irish comedian and TV host Dara Ó Briain on Twitter (recently rebranded as “X.”).
More than once I had to buy my audience a drink, as a thank you for being the only ones there.
Best thing though, it’s all stage time, and the show will get better every single time, ready for the big crowds later,” he added.
A spokesperson for the Gilded Balloon told CNN that her Friday afternoon show was a near sell-out. »
