Yeah, saying "Macbeth" is really, really, bad, but I've also heard just trying to put on the play itself is a cursed endeavor... but considering the number of people that do it year round it must be more of an annoyance curse, like you lose your car keys all the time or something...

He performs Hamlet, not M-cbeth.

But semi more seriously, I've always kind of wondered the thought process that goes into doing a one man show. Especially something pretty ambitious like this... The cost? The difficulty?
Well, I'm doing a One Man Hamlet so it's not so cursed, thankfully. It is ambitious and could easily devolve into parody but I stay true to the story and the cost is rather low cuz it's just one dude running around. One man shows are usuallly the cheapest things to produce. You need a room and some lights usually, maybe a couple sound cues.

No, seriously, sorry about that, got so preoccupied with the Macbeth stuff my brain substituted the two. I had the teacher shove the student into a closet, M-cbeth was on the brain.

But yeah, I've always been kind of curious about one man shows, because you don't have other actors to feed off of, and since it's just you up there it could easily devolve into parody as you said. I thought it was cool the way you used subtle things to differentiate the characters, especially the fathers ghost. I'm just sort of fascinated because I figured out pretty early acting was not for me, even in a full cast vein, and a one man show seems completely terrifying!


And how could Keith not believe in curses? Look how he can't get rid of Danny Lobel or Matt from the Jamhole... I'm thinking Little Baby Faggot was a powerful gypsy.

Also, if you spell M-cbeth out completely, thespians can't throw it out.

After listening to this show is 3-D AND stereo, I don't think I can go on living in the real world.

I have the nerd-logic problem. It super interrupts my life and causes me to lose "friends". Does anyone have advice on how to cure nerdiness?

I would start by not putting "friends" in quotes.

What is that supposed to mean?

Were they not really your friends?
