Icky Sticky Box Office

Gumcicles drip from the curved brick window frame of the Market Theater's box office in Post Alley. The ever expanding Market Theater Gum Wall long ago turned the corner and encroached into the theater entryway. Now the DNA samples are multi-layers thick all around the window. No matter, as the note asks patrons to come into the lobby to get their Improve tickets. Quick, what improvisation would you devise for the kids song "Icky Sticky Bubble Gum"? :-) Here are previous photos starting in 2006 so you can see the growing accumulation of colorful blobs in this tucked away area.

Oh my, the gum wall has spread substantially since I last went to Theater Sports! I have to admit that I have a blob of gum on there somewhere, undoubtedly buried underneath piles of other blobs. Icky is right.
