365 Sketches

Angel, Devil, and Tyler puppets

Erica and I got a sewing machine and what better for a first project than some hand puppets for a show? Pretty good for not having touched a sewing machine in 25 years or so, I'd say. What show?, I wish you'd ask.

Last year my friend Joe Janes wrote a comedy sketch a day. From June 3 to June 13 he's producing all 365 over 26 shows with 26 different directors. I'm in the first show, opening night, presenting 14 sketches written in the first two weeks of the project. So, you know, while he was still sane. Mary Jo Bolduc is directing the show and the ensemble consists of myself, Dennis Frymire, Gabe Garza, Andrew Jordan, Marsha Harman, Jill Fenstermaker, and Sara Gorsky. It's Thursday, June 3, 2010 at 8:00 PM at Strawdog Theatre, 3829 N Broadway (Chicago!).
