show 91: kitty-cat roundabout [Aug. 10th, 2007|09:20 am]

Last night's show at ColdTowne featured our tightest story line so far... that I can remember, anyhow. We tried out a new intro dubbed the Kitty Cat Roundabout, designed to lock in the protagonist and to quickly show different aspects of his or her personality, and the people that make up the world he or she lives in. For some reason, it totally clicked with us, and we hit the ground running.

Once the Roundabout was over, we brutally beat the protagonist down to her lowest point, stripping her of her job, her family's acceptance, her boyfriend, and her friends. And just when she reached to lowest point she could possibly go, the audience let out an audible "awwww". So satisfying. She changed, and dug her way back up to victory, and it just felt right. It felt like a synthesis of everything I liked best about Family Portrait and After School Improv.

For an in-depth summary of the show, go here.

It's strange. Last night's show, more than anything else, helped me to calm down. Everything's going to be alright. Everything will go on. We'll grow, we'll stay connected, and we'll take on the world.

In that lighting, I have bags under my eyes that rival Fat Tony's.

Yeah, very satisfying show. Reminded me why I like longform narrative so damn much.

My tongue is out in that photo. I'm not a very intimidating villain it seems.
