Well, we finally had our last show in our developmental series at the end of January. Many thanks to UNDER St. Marks for providing us with this residency for six months– it was educational, fruitful, and exhausting.
So then I skipped town, went to Nicaragua, and battled monkeys. (True story.)
Anywho, before the skippage, this awesome review/interview went up on The Observer’s (relatively) new tech site, Betabeat, in a piece entitled Blogologues: The Internet Is Stranger Than Fiction. It made me super happy, but I was busy packing monkey-battling gear. (That’s a lie. We were unprepared for the attack.) And that brings us to now.
If you’re interested in learning more about the project– or just procrastinating– please do click here and read the full review. Otherwise, as usual, I’ve included a few choice quotes below.
Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. Monkeys are vicious.
The digital and the theatrical got cozy with one another on Monday night at Blogologues: Come Here Often?… For the duration of the hour-long show, a cast of five kept the audience laughing at the sorts of cultural relics typically enjoyed while sitting alone at a laptop: Craigslist’s Missed Connections, personal blog entries, Texts from Last Night, etc.
The … program informed audience members that they could expect to see blogs performed as monologues and “other wacky material that probably shouldn’t be read out loud.” But judging from the unrelenting laughter at the 7:30 show, theatergoers had no problem with what they heard.
