Last night’s show was great! The folks at Stage 773 are delightful, Kelsie Huff’s opening act was stellar, and the audience was terrific. It’s always fun to hear people’s take on the show after seeing it. It’s admittedly not your run-of-the-mill solo show. Because there are three sock-monkeys whose dialogue the audience “fills in” in their minds, one audience member mentioned to me last night that “It didn’t even feel like a one-woman show!” I love that the voices in my head have begun to inhabit other people’s heads. Heh, heh… Please check out one of the next two shows!
The Good, the Bad, and the Monkey
Written and performed by Amanda Rountree, directed by Jen Ellison
Stage 773′s Cabaret Theatre
1225 W. Belmont
Thursdays, November 10 & 17 at 8:00 pm
And the opening acts continue to be fantastic! Check out Jet Eveleth on the 10th or Evan Jacover on the 11th.
The two biggest misconceptions about this show (from folks who haven’t seen it) are that it’s a puppet show or that it’s a male-bashing show. Nope on both accounts. I don’t speak for the sock monkeys–I just react to ’em. And if I’m making fun of anyone in this show, it’s myself. So, come out and see it, why don’t you? You’ll be glad you did. (Ooo, I’m getting good at this marketing thing. While I’m on roll, please “like” my fan page.) Thanks!
