The monkeys have finally started unpacking from our Louisville trip and now I’m telling ’em to get ready to tour again.
The Good, the Bad and the Monkey has three performances (click here for dates/times/address) at the Shubin Theatre as part of PHIT’s “Side of Sketch” in the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online by clicking here.
The Good, The Bad, and The Monkey
Singlehood, Dating, and the Search for Something Real
Amanda Rountree takes a hilarious–and at times, heartbreaking–look at the cycles of relationships and the myths that we tell ourselves about finding a soul mate…..using sock monkeys. This is certainly not the expected one-woman show about being single or dating. Rountree warmly invites the audience to come along on her own journey, playing herself for the entire show. It’s the sock monkeys who take on the other characters in her life–friends, boyfriends, dates–bits of her own psyche. Because the voices of the other “actors” are easily provided inside the heads of audience members, the viewers are gently wrapped up in this sincere and engaging world in a very amusing way.
“Rountree is amusingly unafraid…” –Chicago Tribune
“Amanda’s energetic and light performance style is the real anchor of the show…her sense of comedic timing is in full display.” –An Angry White Guy in Chicago
“Amanda Rountree is radiantly endearing…” –Chicago Theatre Blog
