On Thursday we instead took the opportunity to eat a lot and see some great shows: To She Or Not To She and Raz. They were both one person shows and totally different and totally awesome. We ate at Kilimanjaro which is a coffee and breakfast place. It is totally winning the best breakfast place award (so far).
We spent an hour stapling reviews onto our flyers because that's how you get people to come to the show here. You have to prove that other people say it's good for anyone to even consider seeing it because there are so many shows to choose from. It's getting really tricky now because there are so many good shows and everyone seems to have great reviews.
After our show - which was totally fun and there were even some people that came back again and brought friends - we went to perform at Cafe Baile Cabaret. We got lost on the way and a nice guy tried to help us find our way with his GPS phone. We made it just in time to sneak through the back of the audience during a really dramatic piece of theatre about women that were missing. We tried to be really sneaky so no one would notice us but they brought us through at kind of the worst moment possible.
The cabaret was JAW DROPPING. There were soooooo many cool acts that made our minds spin in awe and amazement. There was a samurai drumming group from Japan and dancers from Korea to name a couple... and us. It was such an honour to be there with all those incredibleamazingawesome performers from all around the world. Going on after a giant dance spectacle is in interesting thing...but the audience seemed to warm to our charms pretty quickly and then they all wanted our flyers - yay!
In a bizarre shift of events, Morro wanted to come home and sleep and Jasp wanted to party on the town. We did a bit of both and after some veggie gyoza Morro went to write about some adventures and sleep and Jasp stayed out schmoozing with other performers.
Friday started off with a photo shoot for an article about if you were in prison and it was your last show before you get executed - pretty morbid but we did it.
We did lots more stapling and then took a break to see a show before flyering. We saw Moby Alpha - We usually see Chuck and Charlie (the guys in the show) each and every day somewhere around the city. It was fun to finally see their show and we totally recommend it especially if you are into sci-fi stuff and/or Moby Dick. But really, it's just downright awesome.
We decided to make flyering fun today by getting fairy floss (aka cotton candy) and sharing it with people. Then we had one of the best shows ever. We are super in love with the audience that was there and some people that came back yesterday sent some friends and they are amazing. They told us that we should have a TV show which we totally agree with. Also we found out that they are doing a show called Peter Pan but sadly they are leaving tomorrow. They invited us to come perform in their theatre in Stratford - like the original one where Shakespeare is from - so that is the best thing ever.
After the show we celebrated with gin and cucumbers because that is what they told us to do at the bar. Also Jasp had a haggis burger. We hung out the Mark Forward (he is totally famous) and with Jarred Christmas (he is also totally famous) and we saw Jarred's show where he transformed into the sky and made us laugh a lot. Then we did a guest spot at the show Massaoke where we sang "I Think We're Alone Now" with the band and basically felt like rockstars. If you want to go to a seriously fun party - this is the show for you. It was THE BEST! We danced the night away. Sleepy clowns, we got home really late and couldn't sleep because we were so excited. There is so much to do and so little time. How quickly a month can fly.
