[Not Your Mom’s Musical Theater]

If you haven’t already, stop by Not Your Mom’s Musical Theater. Keep up with the [title of blog] videos leading up to the NH premier of [title of show]. If you saw their production of “Musical of Musicals: The Musical”, then you know how talented this cast is. [Very].

What does this have to do with Tuna Fish Discrepancy? Sure, I’m a board member. (I accidentally typed “beard member”, and felt it was worth retyping because it is also true). But we’ve also got something rather special in the works. Keep watching here or there to find out what the heck I’m talking about.

We’ve got some shows coming up that I should tell you about so you can see us do what we do.

November 30, All Asia, Cambridge MA
December 3, Milly’s Tavern, Manchester NH
December 17, Shenanigans, Milford NH (I think this one is happening. You’ll hear about it next month if it’s a go.)

Talk to you soon,
Ross


Pericles

I think it’s safe to say that this was a great weekend.  Saturday we shot the “Pericles” video and it couldn’t have gone better.  Well, maybe if there were less injuries it would have been better, but one must sacrifice for one’s art.  The shoot started at 8:30 am, the band, Todd, Ben, and Lauren all stumbling sleepily into my parents’ kitchen.  As we went over the storyboards, Ben and Lauren began to realize what they had gotten themselves into.

The shoot went very smoothly, with everyone working together, contributing ideas, and really making this a memorable experience.  I can’t tell you how happy and thankful for Ben and Lauren’s enthusiasm I am, both being talented actors and terrific people in general.  It’s good to have great friends.

After the shoot, we all went our separate ways, the band collecting themselves for our show that night at Milly’s Tavern, Todd to work his magic on the footage, and Lauren and Ben to do whatever Laurens and Bens do, probably with a mixture of pride and shame for what they had done.

By the end of our show, Todd had finished editing.  We met him in a gas station parking lot at 2am to watch the finished product.  It was kind of amazing, standing there, watching the laptop sitting on the hood of Tim’s truck, wondering how a silly little song I wrote in high school turned into a professional recording (thanks to the talented engineer, Bryan Atterberry) and amazing music video.  There’s definitely a lot to be thankful for.

Pass the banana,
