Est Paris, a theater group in Paris, France, has put on Shot House by Quinton Cockrell, and Seat Yourself and Bad News Gospel by Michael Merino.
This looks promising. I have been a fan of Mr. Merino's squirrel musings and his You Tube shenanigans.Like Samuel Beckett and Jerry Lewis, this talent has found his deserved following in the land of de Gaulle.Tres bon.
I saw a terrific reading of this playlette at Woolly Mammoth Theatre in Washington, DC. back in March. I think staging this script guerilla-style in a bar is an excellent choice. It's short enough not to overwhelm the contrived spontaneity of the happening, and funny enough to hold the audience’s attention. I would be interested in learning if the piece becomes interactive.
Screw you, Shamu, and Piso Mojado as well. I know your type: lowlife wannabe artistes trying to grab the coattails of a tux-wearing giant. Merino throws up at at the site of a Smith Corona; that's the kind of genius we're talking about.So you can both take your silly little comments, make pliers out of them and rip off your fingernails.I know your domain: This is beyond asshole-ism and into some sort of urinary tract.You're not worthy of sweeping up Merino's toenail clippings.Now go away before I get nasty.
