Women with Confidence: Improvised Mamet

It makes me more likely to defer or hang back, not sure of what the group wants. But I had a lot of fun, playing with using metaphor, not directly talking about the big thing that we are all dealing with.

One of my favorite moments happened at the top of the show. It was set at a firehouse. Mike Ferstenfeld entered by sliding down the fireman’s pole.

A minute later I enter, angrily looking for my husband. “Where’s Litte Thin? I need to talk to that asshole.”
There was a nice turnout for the show that ended up being more dramatic than comedic, and more open ended that tightly wrapped up. That’s the thing about getting a taste of a new format or troupe, it makes you want to go again, and do it better next time!
