I liked this show.
And WOW! How many people were there? did it just seem like a lot because it was in a different space?

Mars, bitches! An excellent start to the semester. And Luke--no, it was high attendance. 100+. God, it's good to be back. Janani's multifaceted comic genius, Benyo's deliriously great stuff, Evan's cantankerousness… I've missed you guys.

Highlights:
Kate Kane's song was pretty good. She just needs to project, 'cause I kept missing words. But did she run away right after, or did she just sit somewhere else?
1.5, 5.5, 13.5) Janani's stuff is always good.
2) My Dearest Beatrice: extremely well-performed by Alisa Rosenthal, and whoever it was (Okay, I know, but I won't say), built the sexual frustration perfectly.
3.5/7) I loved the list, and I loved the way the list turned into an actual skit.
4) and 13) These songs were fun, and they were short!
9) A good, strong serious piece.
10) Oh, Eli.
11) A good character monologue.
12) My favorite part was when Jesse ordered us to move, and we did. It's fun to see pieces from a different angle.
14) Luke, you had some pretty good rhymes here.
15) AIDS PSA--Jesus Christ, was this funny. Spoiled only by the blackouts. I don't know if it was "Dr. Adventure" funny, but it was pretty darn close.
16) The first "Best Of" nomination of the semester. I haven't seen anyone OWN (or PWN) an audience like that in a long time. Waves of hysterical laughter cascading out of A. "And then, they open the helicopter door…" I have no idea why Benyo's using the title of the play I played a tortured Syrian in, but who cares--it's fucking hysterical. Best of! Best of!

And "The Diner" was well received. Yeah, it was a good start to the semester.

I really liked this show even though I wasn't in it.

Get well soon, Katy! (Tea, honey, soup, sleep… tea, honey, soup, sleep…)

And hey, what's with the blog silence?

Reviews = feedback for writers. And poop for poopheads!

I'd write one, but I wasn't there!

Oh goodness, there are far too many no shame pieces from last Friday night for me to even begin to remember them all. For the most part, I thought it was a fun show, and definitely a good first show. The show FELT long, but it ended up being really short. I THINK that was a good thing, because I definitely enjoyed it, but I definitely did think it felt long. Evan, I gotta say that I thought your piece felt like about 5 pieces, but it was very funny, so that was okay. It's like I got 20 pieces for the price of 16. The Travis and Mirri scene was especially funny to me. I really liked when Travis said, "I'm trying to come to you with my problem, and you're being gross." Or whatever that line was. It was good, and Travis did a great job with it. Awesome. Will someone please teach me how to use commas and write sentences properly?

I agree that last week was a good show, and I hope the new people come back.

Tonight, we will again be in Theatre A

So I was looking at the website and there used to be lots of scripts uploaded there. Maybe one or two per show. Around the beginning of 2nd semester that stopped and then no scripts were uploaded.

What's the deal with that?
How do we get scripts on the site?

Luke,

What's up with that is that people just haven't been submitting their scripts.

If you want your stuff up, you can e-mail me a Word doc, text file, or whatever, or cut and paste the text into an e-mail, and I'll post it. (If you don't like the gray background and standard fonts, you may choose to do format your own html file and send me that.)
