Artist-in-Residence at Chez Firth

Monday (11/23/09) 3:09pm - ... wherein Peter has to start shopping for Hammer pants.

I'm very excited to announce that I'm going to be part of the upcoming Arabian-Nights-themed improv show.  (w00t!)

The show is going up at Salvage Vanguard Theater  in late January.  Performance dates are 1/22/10, 1/23/10, 1/29/10, 1/30/10, 2/5/10, 2/6/10, 2/12/10, and 2/13/10 (so:  Fridays and Saturdays from late January to mid-February).  All shows are at 8pm, and presumably tickets will be $10.

Audrey Sansom is directing the show and putting it together.

The show is titled "One More Night" -- young Ms. Sansom picked the name before Googling it and realizing that it was the title of a Phil Collins song.  There are now vague plans to put together some kind of mashup of the top-40 single with classical Raga music.  Stay tuned.

Here's the cast list:
Ace Manning[1]
Andreas Fabis
Avimaan Syam
Chelsea Gilman
Curtis Luciani
Emily Breedlove
Julie Gillis
Kyle Traughber
Madi Goff
Marc Majcher
Meghan Wolff
Mikey Sullivan
Monique Daviau
Peter Rogers (me)

So far, the show looks really exciting.  It's a great, specific world to explore, and the source material has this cool structural quirk of using stories-within-stories-within-stories, and we're going to try to bring that matryoshka-like quality into the show.

I'll keep people apprised as the show progresses.

[1] Ace might only be involved in a limited capacity, due to some other commitments of his.

I'm pretty sure Audrey knew of the Phil Collins provenance of the title.

Really?  The way she told it in our first meeting, it was (1) pick name, (2) Google name, (3) discover Phil Collins song.  *shrug*  Maybe I'm misremembering....

Can it be matryoshka-like if it's not Russian?
