(The recap above was for LAST week's show, but it was so funny, I had to share it here.)
Last night we wrapped up week 4/Cycle 3 of #Serials at The Flea, and once again, I had a great time.
For those of you unfamiliar with the concept, here's what happens: 5 teams each perform a 10-minute original play. At the end of the show, the audience votes for their 3 favorites. At the end of the weekend, the 3 teams with the most votes come back with Episode 2 of their show, while the 2 losing teams each have to start from scratch and come back with an entirely new show. On Saturdays, there's a band, and everyone has a great time.
This week, I got to work with some brand new Bats, and get to know some of the older Bats better. I've said it before and I'll say it again: This group of actors is the most drama-free, supportive, smart group of people I've worked with in a long time. Every person there takes their work seriously, even when they're wearing fake beards, fairy wings, or holding a giant puppet. Even when they're saying lines that would get their mouths washed out with soap, or when they're doing a line dance. Even then.
It's nice to be a part of something, especially in a city as huge as this one. To have a place to go, a place with friendly faces and work to be done, and opportunities to be grasped...well, it's pretty great. I feel really lucky these days. Incredibly lucky. And I plan to make the most of it.
