Sure, I could float around during the Rogue watching shows, sipping on cocktails and hanging with performer friends… OK, I’ll be doing that too but I’ll also be doing this. I was flirting with the idea for a bit and about 2 weeks ago I decided to jump in.
It’s actually a stepping stone to something else… but we’ll talk about that in another post. Right now my time is being spent retooling the show. So for now… here is what I posted for the “event invitation” on Facebook. Hope to see you at the show.
Q: What is “rogue-ing the rogue” mean?
A: Basically, it is a show NOT listed in the Rogue but performing during the Rogue. Yes, that’s Rogue 2011 which you all should go to.http://roguefestival.com/rogue2011/
Q: What does “pay what you want” mean?
A: The first difference with this show is… you pay AFTER the performance! Either the $7 stated or what you want. give and give generously.
Q: Has this show been done before?
A: Yes it has… in fact, it was a Mainstage Show in the 2006 Rogue and was also performed at the Broken Leg Stage last May.
Q: Isn’t there a 1975 Canadian movie with the same title?
A: Yes, there is but this show has got nothing to do with the movie… and there are no Canadians in it… just some damn foreigner Malaysian. Though there is a chance that James Mason may make a brief appearance. Next question…
Q: I’ve heard that Marcel hates being on stage.
A: This is true… which is all the more reason why you should see it. That opportunity may never enter your lifetime ever again.
Q: So, why is he doing it?
A: There actually is a reason that is beyond the show… but the only way to find out is to come to the show.
Q: What is the show about?
A: Will you just quit with the questions and just come to the show?! Isn’t it enough that James bloody Mason may make an appearance?
Q: Is there anything else I should know?
I’m glad you asked. The show is being sponsored by http://itmightbearumorbut.com/
