I am no photoshop whiz but here is what I came up with for our show poster.
Ahhhhhh, how did that happen? We have five preview sets, two test sets, three reho and tech.
Here is what I have left to do to deliver this show.
1. We need a GD title. We wanted to think on it a week and poll friends.
2. I have to write and send out press releases.
3. I have to design and print a poster/palm card
4. Print playbills (oh and put them together)
5. Work the shows transitions and start to pay close attention to time. In an ideal world the show runs 45 min (50-55 with laughs)
Here is the titles we are gonna vote on today:
Fifty Shades of Gay
Hey Girl, I heard You like Comedy so I made this Revue
One Hundred Years of Attitude
One hundred Years of Bad Tattoos
One hundred years of watching Youtube
Eat, Pray, Give Up
The Adventures of Foreclosed Homes
Game of Thorns
Wrigley’s Field of Dreams
Its not me Its you
It’s not us, it’s you
Don’t Be a Menace to the North side while Drinking your Vitamin Water in the Lincoln Park Zoo
Separation of State and Division
Dinner with Dicks
Stereotypes and other time savers
Light Color Filter
Dinner with Differences
Now in technocolor
So as these things happen we have a cast member pulled away for the weekend for personal family stuff. The only reason (besides the obvious) its a bummer is because we are taking press pictures Friday. I have hired a photographer to do pictures before and during the set. I can’t put it off cause we need to go to press four weeks out with a picture and press release. So they won’t be in the picture. He suggested I photoshop it :) I may do that for the poster but in general press like clean copies to mess with.
Monday show titles are due. I have come up with some crummy ones I don’t love. I will share our titles Monday. More later in the week.
So tonight we have at set CIC 1422 w Irving Park. 10:30. Come by and check it out
So because I tend to over commit myself I missed our set on Tuesday but they taped it for me. They snuck in an additional sketch with out asking and went over in time from the 12 min limit. I haven’t see the tape yet and am not sure it was worth it. I am surprisingly not mad, it’s not like they did it opening night. But I should probably address it so it doesn’t become “a thing they do when I am not there”
