It doesn’t have to be current, but hey – everyone’s got a story and the F.W. Thomas Performances would like you to share it. In their own words:
In addition to our ALL-STAR lineup of presenters, we’re opening the podium up to that most dreaded of all show-biz tropes: AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION.
To wit: We are looking for BREAKUP STORIES, EMBARRASSING LOVE LETTERS (THOSE RECEIVED and THOSE WRITTEN AND MERCIFULLY UNSENT) and OTHER ASSORTED TALES of ROMANTIC WOE. Possbily including:
* Transcripts of Instant Messenger dumpings
* Excerpts from restraining orders taken out by celebrity crushes and delivered via process server
* Primary school Valentine’s cards woefully misinterpreted by you
The audience participation portion of the evening will be modeled after a poetry slam. As is the case in a poetry slam, performers will be expected to be dynamic and brief.
Unlike a poetry slam, you will be expected to be funny and interesting.
They had me even before they took a swipe at poetry slams, but that clinched it. Don’t be a wuss, brave the
light snow Wintry Doom of Death and get thee just north of the Verizon Center and see the show. Seriously: $5. How wrong could it go?
