Complete this sentence: My show is the only one opening in NYC this fall that...?
is about a pair of conjoined twins.
Do you think the audience will talk about your show for 5 minutes, an hour, or way into the wee hours of the night?
i hope there's a line or an image or a moment in the play that will stay with an audience member for years. that's about all you can wish for in the theater.
Which cartoon character would you identify your show with: Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Mickey Mouse, Marge Simpson?
the twins in aren't given any birth names so call themselves after Betty and Barney off of The Flintstones so we'll have to go with that.
Who are your heroes?
people who put plays on with a few dollars in their pocket and some ideas in their head.
