I'm having a hard time remembering what titles go with what. I also missed some shows though.

I just wanted to say that I have a copy of "The Family that Shits Together" and I would like to see it in the show

I really like the peice to music and the star crunch bar by eli

I am convinced that most people are forgetting to vote for A Dance Party just because of it's ambiguous title. It's the one where Spencer got up on stage and proclaimed himself to be the dance king.

I'll selfishly second the nomination for "In the Act" by Montgomery Scott, as performed by me (one A. Burton) and Margie Dubé, because I thought Mr. Scott's script was excellent and it was a lot of fun to perform.

This was the piece about a man getting in touch with his more adventurous side at the urgent urgings of the woman he's been seeing.

I vote for "Who is Sunny and why is she on the couch" that didn't actually get performed. I wanna know!

12/03/2009 2:59 PM  
Blogger Eric Jesteadt said...

I vote for whichever of the table pieces is the best one. I only saw one but I heard about others. I cannot wisely choose a specific table piece, but I nominate whichever one was the best.

I also nominate Phallus Sea by James S Roth and A Dance Party.

For those that don't remember Time Before Land, it was the one that involved Luke and Katie acting like fish, (Luke was the shark) darting around the stage,
