Behind the Scenes - Favorites
Everybody has favorites – foods, books…people. Actors have favorites with their shows too. Sometimes the favorite is their own part, line, or scene while other times, fellow characters steal the show for everyone. Let’s find out some favorite things the ‘Do Not Disturb’ actors have before opening night.
The wigs of the show are rated at the top of this show’s list. Seeing everyone transform from one character to another was amazing and hilarious. The costume room is packed with all the changes.
Co-Director, Debbie Bowser, says she enjoyed watching everyone transform from one person to another since there are 8 actors for 22 parts. The laughter never stopped during rehearsal with the switches.
Conrad Bianco remembers the hilarity of performing the rendezvous scene the first time. No details provided so you’ll have to watch to see why.
The character that left the biggest impression on Mark LaMarche was ‘Melissa’ because of how limber she was.
Eric Armstrong remembers many fond memories of rehearsals, but his funniest experience was the considerable number of rehearsals the cast went through to try to get his character’s pants to come off quickly. He shared that he ‘was feeling the breeze.’
More favorite parts are the lines of the show. Here are some of the funniest (at least for the cast). You’ll just have to see the show to figure out what they mean…and if they really are funny.
“What’s the matter with him?”
“Now, I’d love to stay here and do unnatural things with mules on film for you, but…I’ve got a job!”
"You wanna kiss Carl?"
“Do you want to go bowling?”
And, let’s just say…that’s only the beginning. Don’t miss the hilarious comedy showing this weekend at The Avenue Theater.
