Pickwick's is pretty Portsmouth. If you're wondering what I mean by that, it's just to say that we do our best to keep the shop lively and timeless, a fitting tribute to the grand old city herself. A big piece of this is staying on top of what's shaking in town and if you want to be at the heart of the action, there is no better place to start than in the beautiful Music Hall, tucked away on historic Chestnut Street. We are so honored to have partnered with them on the installation of beautiful twin mirrors that we hope will reflect back the excited faces of theater-goers for many years to come.

We'll let the Music Hall introduce itself:
Important in history and in the lives of Seacoast residents for 135 years, The Music Hall has brought nationally and internationally acclaimed artists to this small city, making world-class entertainment readily accessible to the region. Since 1878 it has reflected and affected the growth of this bright corner of New England, serving as an important gathering place. Its performers have ranged from Mark Twain to Wynton Marsalis and David Crosby; Vaudeville acts with elephants to RENT the musical and violinist Joshua Bell. (from their website)
When I asked her the "Why?" behind the mirrors, the proprietress of Pickwick's informed me that she has been attending events at the Music Hall since her childhood, and "we are honored to add to the magic The Music Hall bestows upon the city of Portsmouth." It's a wonderful thing to be a part of. This blogger has grown much taller over her many years spent in the Music Hall seats, as well (the Messiah Sing is an essential part of the Christmas season).
|Take a seat; be swept away!|
We are excited to announce that we will have a vendor space at several of the Music Hall's holiday performances this year. Come and let us know your thoughts on the mirrors and don't forget to give us your review of the show before walking back into the amber glow of a Portsmouth winter's night. Maybe we'll run into each other!
