Tonight's Villainy show went really well. This would've been the last show of the run if it hadn't been extended. The audience was really good, too. Some strangers, some fans, some fellow improvisers, a lot of ColdTowne students, and some Merlinworks students as well.|
The story tonight revolved around a villainous couple played by Kareem and Val. They were friendly enough, but built a giant wall around their house. And when they had a daughter, they micro-managed her life.
The story took care of itself, and we heightened their villainy nicely. Some of my favorite moments were:
* hiding under a bench as a well-meaning 5th grader named Jeremy
* the flashback showing how Kareem and Val (Mr. and Mrs. Forthright) used to be professional torturers.
* introducing the fact that they kept people locked in their house, by running in as a new character and trying to make a break for the open door.
* Mr. Forthright's instilling his daughter as class president coming back to bite him.
* as their son, shooting the villains dead in the last moment of the show.
I love it when a show goes well for a full house, because there's a palpable energy in the lobby afterwards, and you get to talk to people about this thing that you love and that they just saw.
And we sold two shirts!
And we leave for Providence in 4 hours or so. CRAZY.
Sooooo.... if someone wanted to plan a trip to be able to see one of your shows, how would they go about knowing when and where to find you? Just sayin'.
pgraph.com has the full schedule.
And we play every Thursday at Coldtowne Theater in Austin!
Your shirts are great. I always marvel at Henri M.'s, when he wears his, which seems to be quite often.
