OK. How did the show go? Well, since I wrote it it’s kind of awkward to say anything about it, but I can tell you that we packed The Players Theatre, 6-20-06, with 200
people. There was a copius amount of laughing, and applause. Overall the audience was very entertained, as was evidenced by the many generous appreciations from
people after the show. The show brought the BF heavy/funny genre to 200 people for a 90 minute trip into the beautiful Land of Fuh.
It was cool…as people came in a ” passport clerk” handed out “visas” to the Land of Fuh.
The stage was covered in astroturf and the back wall covered with a backdrop depicting the Land of Fuh.
Our Director, David Copeland took the book and gave it life, made the people and Land of Fuh a living reality. The roughly two 1/2 months of auditions and rehearsals, under his guidance was for me a fantastic experience.
Our cast Lilah Freedland (Daughter of Force), Alex Perez, Erin Evers, Melissa Schoenberg, Mai Sakamoto, Erikka Walsh, Lesley Middlebrook, John Nasta, McGregor
Wright, Melissa Meli, David Doumeng, Sandra Laredo, and Brute, were super excited going into the evening and more so after. All made the fantasy live. A fantasy land where Love overcomes Hate and War.
Again, I can’t be a critic here. What we did is to workshop the script, successfully present the musical, and start the buzz, a continuation of the buzz started way back in 1969 when Beatles Harrison and Lennon created Apple 08.
In coming months I shall be raising money for a run off-b’way and if any of you want to invest in King of Fuh, The Musical, or know people who invest in live stage, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. This show has, as they say, “legs”.
I am depending upon you, O Mighty Brute’s Force, to do your best, to let your family and friends know that they’ll want to take a trip to the Land of Fuh, when the show runs again.
