I got home extremely late tonight but it was all worth it because I was teching this terrific show which premieres in just a few hours. The show features Dan Hodapp and Carrie McCrossen giving some of the most fun performances I’ve seen them do, Dan Chamberlain giving narration so silky smooth you could make pyjamas out of it, and a script by Cameron Fleming that is absolutely perfect. It’s my first time directing at the theater and I really think you should all go. It’s super fun!
Tonight at 6:30pm at the UCB Theatre.
Guys, this is going to be very, very super. I hope you come see!
I’m excited to see this you guys! how can it not be fantasmo?!
