Last night was my first rehearsal for a new Improv venture, a new team for Character Dogville presented by Manhattan Comedy Collective in Times Square. I was lucky enough to be told about this group by my friend Victor, a fellow UCB classmate. At last night’s rehearsal, nine of us came together to work on some improvised monologues, 2-person scenes, and “montages” in a documentary format – think Christopher Guest’s Waiting For Guffman or Best in Show. The premise, or concept, of this show is “character” improv – so we will develop a variety of characters over our six weeks of rehearsal and end up with a cast of characters that can interact in our final performance in February. (NYCers, I will shamelessly plug this in a few weeks!) Last night, I tried out a few characters- including a meat-factory protesting vegan, a book-reading philosophy professor from Big Fork (shout out to Auntie Bev!), and a peg-legged one-eye pirate who invents a miniature telescope – called a “Micro- scope.” I wasn’t too happy with my characters or scenes – but I guess I was a little out of practice. Well, the people in my class are absolutely hilarious, and I’m really looking forward to what will come in the next couple months!
fun fun fun. sounds like a great time, a fabulous learning opportunity! xxoo Mom
Go for it girl, you can do it. I have to congratulate you on your blog. It is done with class and style. Keep it up, I’m proud of you, Oma
Me too, proud of you that is. I am always falling in line behind Oma, probably because she makes me do the housework first. I agree with Oma, the blog is making my day. Keep it up.By the way, the $10.00 a week adventure orchestrated by your dad is a great idea.Love you, Opa
