DSI Wrap Up

Okay, so it’s way overdue, but DSI went fairly well overall.

The GGG show was solid. We had some funny moments, some nice songs, and a bit of dancing on that nice big stage. The suggestion was Ice Cream Stand: The Musical. I got to play an older lady and Jen played my thoughtless husband. He had forgotten it was my birthday and I got to sing a song about how I don’t wish for happiness or love or anything like that. If I had one wish, it would be ice cream, in a dish. 😉

The festival overall was a bit of a let down. The venues were all weird. The Arts Center was huge and never more than half full. I think we saw a lot of decent troupes do some really crappy shows because they could not fight against the space. The DSI space was small and had columns in the center of the theatre that made for weird sight lines. The Headlining show, which was amazing (Upright Citizens Brigade TourCo, BassProv) was in the Cats Cradle, a standing room only venue with bad sight lines and acoustics. And the freestyle rap battle, a trademark of the DSI scene didn’t even happen because barely no one signed up to participate.

Plus we really didn’t meet a lot of people. We kept going to the shows and after parties and asking, where are the 50 troupes that are supposed to be in this festival.

We did have some good girl bonding time and it’s good to see how your troupe fits in a larger scene.

Now GGG is looking forward to producing LAFF: Ladies Are Funny Festival April 27-28. It’s going to be awesome.
