From the Nosedive Archives: Where is Overman?

In honor of the 10th anniversary of the opening of Nosedive's first show, Monkeys, which went up February 16-26, 2000, Pete is uploading a new videos from our past exploits each day on our Web site.

Since we have no video or photos of our first play, Monkeys, we're posting a seemingly random hodgepodge of performance videos and backstage shenanigans.

And now, dear readers, we come to the end of the line for the daily posts, though keep checking the Nosedive site for new videos, which will continue to be posted daily for the next few days.

For our final daily video, to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the closing night of our first production, we bring you the massive Overman monologue from our 2008 production, Colorful World, my ersatz stage adaptation of Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns/Strikes Again graphic novels.

Pete and I pretty much agree that this scene here is all about the Shearer Brothers: Patrick does an astounding job here as Overman, and his older brother Phil does wonders with the lights. See for yourself. I don't know if much introduction is necessary: Patrick as Overman will fill in the gaps for you.

Well, I hope you've enjoyed this haphazard walk down memory lane with me. Again, more videos will continue to be posted on the Nosedive site in the ensuing days and weeks. I'll resume blathering about whatever I damn well please on this site starting next week. In the meantime, have a good weekend, folks. I'll catch you all on the theoretical flop.

Putting way too many words in his actors' mouths,
