My short piece is being staged as part of Capital T's show about Americans relationship with the giant retailer. Anyone else have something in it?

Yep. I do! Which piece did you do? (I don't have the program in front of me.) I did the REBRANDING MEETING. It was a fun project. Some reviews I found:

I wrote "Is it an international call to the 51st state?"

Going to see it this weekend.

I have a monologue in this show--"Why I Sold My Baby at the Wal-Mark"--didn't get to see it. Does anyone know of any other reviews than the ones mentioned above?

Both Rebranding and Baby were very well received on Fri when I saw them.

Rebranding actor was so perfect in the part he was scary.

Baby got good laughs and Carrie did a great job.

Greetings all.  I wrote two of the monologues and saw a number of the performances.  Across the board, audiences were very pleased; the show was a success.  Thanks to all of you folks who contributed.

Craig: Went to the final night's performance, and Matt did a really remarkable job that night.  The degree of growth he brought across the run makes me wish there were more shows so that the piece could continue to hit those nuances Ron offers.

Larry: There was never a night that Mason didn't capture the audience with your well-crafted piece.

Elizabeth: I truly enjoyed your piece and Carrie's performance of it - one of my favorite parts of the evening.  Of course, I may be a touch biased seeing as to how Carrie's my wife and all... Both your piece and Craig's offered a nice dose of realism to balance the show as a whole.

Thanks, Tobias and smokyb (Brad?)  I watched the show on the live stream--but wish I could have been there. Carrie was great!
