Peter Griffin, Sir Lancelot

We are now underway with our second weekend of our four-weekend run of Suburban Peepshow and "Trailers." Last night's show was a lot of fun and I'm very much looking forward to tonight. Seriously, folks, it's a small theatre, so don't wait until the last minute to come see it. Get your tickets here.

Last night, Subjective Theatre Company founder/artistic director Zachary Mannheimer came to the show and had a drink with us afterwards, saying to me: "So it looks as though you've finally written your Family Guy play for the stage."

Well yes, exactly so.

I've been having a tough time trying to accurately describe the show to people and have been falling flat: a straight plot summary won't help, as will mentioning the "style" or ideas. But that's a pretty accurate one-sentence description: Family Guy for the stage. (Sorry, Isaac, but you're still coming to see it.)

(Oddly enough, as soon as I wrote that last sentence, Zack Calhoon, who's in the show, posted a comment on my previous blog entry saying that his friend described the show as "Monty Python on anti-depressants." If you're really Family Guy-phobic, that description may suit you better.)

Well, I guess you're going to have to see it for yourself.

And in closing, happy birthday to both Marc and Kid Sister Becky!

Bringing the party favors,

James "Punch n' Pie" Comtois
