Paul, you asked for it, so here it is! It's a lot less trippy than the show we did about the hollow tree wherein it rains candy and women are seduced away from their husbands by the chicken people. Hahahahahaha!

Below is a run-down of the show I was in on Friday night, as I recall it. Warning, it's loooooooong. There's a short video snippet of it at the end of this post if you want to skip ahead, although it may make even less sense without reading the entire post. :lol:

It started out with an oversexed Mexican man doing a sultry dance with a woman and seducing her, taking her back to his "tavern on the beach where the waves come right up to my bed." Next scene was several people boarding a carnival cruise ship. The cruise director was polling the guests to find out what they were hoping to get out of the cruise. A man from Ohio said he had heard that Mexico has live sex shows. He said that he'd come on the cruise with his wife, but he couldn't find her. He was afraid she had become part of one of the sex shows. Just then, then the oversexed Mexican dancer, who happened to be a towel boy or something, came along, and the cruise director made a great effort to keep him from the Ohio man. The director asked the Ohio man how long he'd been married. He said six weeks, that he'd met her in the supermarket. Cue flashback scene. Woman is shopping, and the man approaches her and asks if she'd like to marry him and go on a cruise to Mexico to watch live sex shows. She agrees if he will pay for her groceries. Back to the present.

The spotlight came up on me, and I did a little monologue about how my granddaughter thought it would be a good idea to take me on a cruise for my 85th birthday, but how it was all too much for me. My granddaughter then came running over to me, all full of energy and wanting to party. She fed me a pill that made me feel young again. We danced and threw back shots, and then I screamed, "Point me in the direction of some men!" That's when I noticed Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome casually smoking a cigarette. I threw back a few more shots, and then approached him. He seemed to fall instantly in love with me, and began proclaiming his affection in a long, passionate monologue in Spanish, punctuated by wild, sweeping arm movements. He would return to press me to him, and then would be off again, gesticulating and ranting around the stage. This seemed to go on for quite a while, with me not understanding most of it. :lol: The audience was laughing, though, so that’s good. When he seemed to pause, I just looked him in the eyes, bewildered, and said, “I feel exactly the same way!” (Cue more laughs. Phew!) Then he told me how he’d been married, but she’d left him because he’d bounced a check. I told him it was okay, I only use debit, and then as he clutched me and cried, he said, “Yes, but there are all those hidden fees!”

At some point around this part of the show (things get a bit vague sometimes), the oversexed Mexican and the grocery store wife were dancing again, auditioning for the Carnival Cruise. The cruise director got dragged in, and it became a song and dance number for the whole cast, with Ohio man running around the stage singing, “Live sex shoooooow! Live sex shoooooow!” :lol: The song ended, and the Ohio man confronted his wife, asking why she ran away. She started screaming at him, “You promised me you’d pay for my groceries! You can’t even do that!”

It went vague again for a bit, and my Latin lover was back (He and Ohio man were same actor, which is part of the vagueness, I think). He turned to me and said that he wanted to take me away to his country, only I’d turned back into an old lady. My granddaughter gave me another pill, feeding it to me and shaking my head like it was a tequila shot. :lol: Then he and I danced and danced, then more Spanish terms of endearment. Then he held me close and said, “I don’t care that you have to take a pill to be with me. There is nothing wrong with having to take a pill. Lots of people have to take a pill. Someday I may get old and have to take a pill to be with you, too.” :lol: Then he took me to his boat, promising all sorts of lovely things. We got in, and he laid back and said, “Okay, row.” So he made me row. We didn’t get too far, though, as he ended up getting eaten by a shark (figures), leaving me stranded in the middle of the ocean by myself. As luck would have it, though, a Carnival cruise ship came by just then, and a nice young man from Ohio helped me aboard. He told me how he’d been married for six weeks, but it hadn’t worked out. I said, “Well, six weeks is a long time to be married.” He said, “You’re right, it is. But now I think I love you!” Cue another song and dance number, twirling around the stage and singing about how life on a cruise ship is like a dream. Then, while we were singing and dancing, Ohio man turned to me and sang, “Why do you look so old?” I instantly started turning 85 again, and sang, “Oh crap!” And that was the end of the show. :lol:

Gods, it SO loses something in translation, but typing it out, it’s making me laugh like a loon! If it means anything, people were coming up to us and saying it was the best set they’d ever seen!

A friend made a one-minute video of the very end (minus my last line, poo!), if you want to get an idea of what it looks like when we do a big, musical finish. :lol: The quality is crap because it was just my Canon digital camera, so it comes out feeling a bit unbalanced and jumbled. It looks and sounds worlds better in person. Oh, and this is the same friend who recorded my musical number, so I hope you all took your Dramamine! :lol:

EDIT: I'm going to be taking this link down in just a couple of days, as I feel weird having it up there for the world to see(especially not having asked anyone else's permission). Wanted you lot to see it if you wanted, though.

Right, before I do a report proper of my time in LA with VL, I must just mention the 18th April, when I finally got to go to The Hothouse and see Sheila in action!

What a fantstic evening and VERY VERY inventive and funny.

All three sets were really good. Sheila appereared in the first of three and the whole piece was funny revolving around Earth Day. Sheila highlights were her being a bird,a tree (if I remember correctly) and best of all when high falling off her seat whilst stoned, which got a really big laugh and rightly so. Everyone was brilliant in it and Sheila shone, myself and Sheila's freiend were killing ourselves laughing! :lol:

A guy came on and did a really funny musical interlude mid time and then the rest of Sheila's gang did thier piece, which had the immortal 'Jesi' line! :lol:

Then the alumini came on and did there stuff, which was very entertaining

It was really fun evening and I felt proud to know Sheila! Id go EVERY week if I could! Loved it!

I hope Asty gets a chance to go

It went very well, thanks! I'm told our set was very surreal, all about dreams and dream-makers and dream-stealers and that sort of thing. It was very dreamy. :lol:

Some friends and I did a scripted sketch at The Hothouse on Friday. A friend filmed it on my camera, which for some unknown reason stopped filming partway through so that it's in two pieces. :D

Thanks guys! We laughed our butts off while writing it. :lol: We're performing it again next Thursday at a different venue and have plans to extend it, and maybe do sequels, as well.

Oh, and yes, I made the scarves and the sorting hat. :lol: Behold my awesome knitting skills! Hahahahhah!

In case any of you want to see a show I did a few weeks ago, here's a video online. :D

http://www.vimeo.com/2175005

I'm also in some short commercials for the theater: Big Booty and Got Yer Back (the third one, if the page looks the same for you as it does for me).

And I've just shot another four videos for them over the last few weeks, which I'll be posting links to as soon as they're available. :D
