The seven o'clock was sold out. The crowd was large, boisterous and extremely appreciative. We were accompanied by the Groovalicious Drummings of the Funky Amazonians. :D
The nine o'clock crowd was small, quiet and listening... but seemed to have a good time, too. We were accompanied by the Groovalicious Drummings of the one remaining Funky Amazonian. :)
Our ninety-minute show ended up going to nearly two hours, even with cuts-on-the-fly. Had to stop for laughs and pregnant pauses along the way. Still, I felt like I was rushing; trampling audience reactions. I often feel that way with scripted comedy, though.
I removed my bra onstage at one point (thought that was worth noting for posterity *snork!*), and draped it upon the Commissioner's head. His SO liked it so much that she asked me for the brand and model. Heh.
Enjoyed the show. Enjoyed it a lot. A magnificent, brave, intelligent, patient and extremely talented group of people took a seat-of-our-pants staged reading and turned it into something truly remarkable.
I'd do it again, if given the chance.
The Project's organizers thank all involved:
People in Denmark take the story to heart (and play keep-away with other organs):
