So yesterday I spent most of the day in a haze of glue, the window open to fight the fumes as the dollar store has found the one substance impervious to stickiness and made poster board out of it.
Three kinds of glue…yep THREE KINDS OF GLUE…wait, nope, make that four…later, and those props are ready to go. I have a few more things to do before our tech rehearsal tonight, which will be our only shot at the space before we open.
On Saturday. At 10 p.m.
No one can say we didn’t work hard on this show. I may have reached my crafting limit for the year with the props, and I love a good craft.
And here’s the thing: it’s actually funny. Our actors are such an incredible bunch, and we have an amazing integration of digital technology with some shorts and a digitally interactive scene.
Not to mention the props are on point. Because really, its all about the props, right? It’s OK, I know you’re only agreeing with me to make me feel good, but I’ll take it!
So here we go! And if you are in Chicago, it’s definitely a fun way to spend an hour on a Saturday night. The tickets are cheap ($13), and did I mention there’s booze?
In or near Chicago? Check out our sketch comedy revue, Me Inside Me Presents: “Neurotrash.” Saturdays at 10 pm, May 7, 14, 21 & 28 in Donny’s Skybox Theater. Click here for tickets.
