A One-Act?

We had two explosive shows yesterday as we count down to 100. And because it was Purim at the temple, we had to compress the show in order to give them space for their festivities. So, we got rid of the intermission -- as the big Ethel moment was happening, I turned and said, "STOP! STOP! I have a confession to make... our relationship began with a lie!" (which is one of the opening lines from act two) and we cruised right through to the end of the show.

And, whaddaya know, it was a much better show!

People had been telling us they thought it might work better as a one act, and they were right! it does. We've decided to continue doing it exactly that way. Whodathunk it?

I love when little accidents like that happen, forcing you to improvise, and you end up with a better product.
