I was not seeking to saturate the Fringe this year but sometimes things come up and someone needs to put together a show with a week’s notice. I’m there to help out.
John Newstrom, who is directing Shrodinger’s Apocalypse also co-created another show at this year’s Fringe. I’m not sure exactly what happened but one of his actors had to drop out of that show last week. And it was a two man show.
Not wanting to lose his Producer’s fee, John asked me if I’d be willing to help mount a last-minute thing. I said yes.
So we present Stop Talking: The Game of Talking!
If the show sounds familiar, that is because we did it at last year’s Fringe. Not to worry, though! The show is an improvisational game show and that means it is different every time!
We’ve pulled together a whole bunch of very talented comedians and performers to help out with this show and if it is anything like last year, it will be a ton of fun.
Hosting duties will be shared by Joseph Scrimshaw and myself. My lovely wife Pat will be handing the timekeeper and scoring duties.
A whole lot of people will be playing the game including (but not limited to): Allegra Lingo, Ben San Del, Phillip Andrew Bennett Low, Molly Glover, Nick Glover, Sharon Stiteler, Bill Stiteler, Levi Weinhagen, Windy Bowlsby, Courtney McClean, Jena Young, Eric Knight, Johnny Packard and Jerry Belich.
We’ll be at the Music Box Theatre on the following dates:
Sunday, Aug 4th at 4:00 PM (hosted by me)
Tuesday, Aug 6th at 10:00 PM (hosted by Joseph Scrimshaw)
Thursday, Aug 8th at 8:30 PM (hosted by me)
Friday, Aug 9th at 10:00 PM (hosted by Joseph)
Saturday, Aug 10th at 1:00 PM (hosted by me)
The show is fast paced, silly and just got added at the last minute. So do us a favor and check it out, OK???
