Yay, an actual review, (or a least a paragraph) by Spike Gillespie about our Frontera Fest show in the Austinist:
Here's the relevant bit:
"And I was tempted to saturate my pantalones when the group Parallelogramophonograph performed Improvised French Farce. It was unclear how improvised this piece was—the four comic actors' work together is magnifique. But who cares how they got there—they had the whole audience laughing itself silly."
That makes it all worth it to me. One of the biggest compliments I can get in improv is when people remain dubious that it was all made up on the spot. After last night's show at ColdTowne, I had a similar exchnage with one of our audience members.
I'm not sure what our chances of making Best of Week are (lots of improv this week, and we played on Tuesday to a small house) but we exposed new people to our style and got a nice writeup.
Hooray! Not a bad way to end our French Farce run.
Oh, and we got it on tape, too. Assuming it came out well, it may very well be our next festival submission tape.
