I guess I'll be the first, and i guess I'll go all out. I don't remember all this stuff as well as I would like to, but I'll try.

1. The World's Greatest Businessman
by Evan Schenck

I was hoping for a super twist ending that would make me say "Oh SNAP" and was left somewhat unsatisfied. Everything leading up to the end suggested the "oh SNAP," though, which was good

2. True Confession
by Greg Machlin
I don't remember this much. I remember getting distracted by people coming in late...

3. American Bar Song
by Mirri
The chorus of this had a lot of good variety that made me think "yeah!"

4. Imitating Becket
by Eli Wilkinson
beckett is spelled with two T's and I think it was a pretty good imitation of Beckett's writing. Although i don't know if i agree with the interpretation of his writing that it all takes place in a post-apocalyptic world with the surreal-talking characters... everybody else disagrees though

5. Really, Gary Marshall
by Me
I liked this. This is how a movie thing should be done. A movie everybody's probably seen. A CONCISE, CLEAR description for those who haven't seen it. and it doesn't fool around much with fluff. Good stuff

6. Eric Jesteadt's Debut on the People-A-Phone
by Eric Jesteadt
I want to see a full-blown, well rehearsed people-o-phone, and I want it to be request night.

7. Call It
by Saint Jimmy
Good work dealing with the first-time jitters and memorization. keep it up.

8. End of an Era
by Me
I like this guy. I want to see more of him. (I also literally didn't see much of him because of the baseball cap :( )

9. Cancer
by Brian Lenth
Man, I think Brian must've eaten some a'those Mexican Jumping beans for dinner!

10. Questions from Catholic Book
by Jamal River
Jamal's great at the nonsense grumble songs, and I liked the bongo drumming that Jake was doing with it.

11. Doctor Myeyes Explains it All
by John Bates
the guy who wrote the "call it" piece was a good sport about the whole improv thing (and lack of).

Luke that piece was inspired by three things:

Setting and character appearence: Waiting for Godot

Apocalyptic feel/ Time : Endgame

Dialogue and pace: Nagg and Nell from Endgame

1) The World's Greatest Businessman--this was fun.

2) This came out surprisingly well. People really liked the pause at the end.

3) American Bar Song--I liked it.

4) Imitating Beckett--A tough act to pull off. Minor objections: Beckett's characters don't ever directly reference Heaven or Hell, probably because there isn't one in their views, and they don't much reference death--they very specifically use words like "the end." Also, they still manage to have fun--these characters seemed more depressed and less active.

5) Really, Gary Marshall
The director of "A League of Their Own" was PENNY Marshall. Garry Marshall was not involved, not even as a producer or something. Thus my objection to this piece.

6) Eric Jesteadt's People-A-Phone: The out-of-tune stuff was fun. I would be interested to see a people-a-phone where everyone can hold a tune.

7) Call It--An impressive debut, with a nice closing line.

8) End of an Era--I liked it, but Joe Luis Cedillo did a piece last semester, and Paul Behrendtsen did "The Ten Bhumis" in October. Also, I've been personally attempting to recruit Ethan Henry for some time now. FYI.

9) Cancer: Really liked it.

10) Questions from Catholic Book: Liked it, but don't remember it.

11) Doctor Myeyes: Good, but not quite as successful as Instant Shakespeare.
