"Seat Yourself" & "Pompa y Circonstancia"

Performed earlier this year in Paris and Washington, DC, théâtre du jour comprises two comic shorts written and directed by Michael Merino. The show, a collaborative effort between Est Paris Theater and the Lower Garden Project Theater In Exile will be performed at the New Orleans Fringe Theater Festival, November 13-16.

Seat Yourself
explores the frustrations of fine dining and "the euphemism."

Pompa y Circunstancia
concerns a bizarre commencement ceremony, where two brothers miscommunicate about what to wear, life and lunch.

The cast includes Perry Leopard, Randy Maggiore, and Claudia Baumgarten.
