I have my computer dial Hils at 3 am just for shits and giggles.
Nick Garrison ruins everything. His characters are all the same and so are his jokes that are not all that funny. I really like the others but maybe Ian should try and recruit some new talent. Jacki Hell would be great in this.
also opening on broadway as a musical with music by Dolly Parton this spring...
The Dolly Parton musical version is starring Allison Janney as Violet.
wait, is this the original irritating guy in a suit Moneytree caterpillar that was still somewhat cheesily endearing, or the current very irritating, dumb and boring CGI Moneytree caterpillar?
and I love in-jokes...
Me and the man toy are there. Oh yes, we are.
ian @ 4...REALLY? REALLY? REALLY? REALLY? REALLY? OMG!!!! if i have to walk...i will be there. opening night. i promise you.
@5 The rumor I have heard is Ian Bell was the original Caterpillar. But I heard if from some gays and they cant get married so I am not sure if I believe or trust anything they say.
@5 & 8:
Not a rumor.
And Adrian, how could you NOT have heard of Rebecca Mmmmmmmmmmmmm Davis? Hostess of The Stay Up Late Show, and all-round funny, loud-mouthed Lesbo?
well, comte, i stopped reviewing theatre every week going on two years ago...the world has passed me by...
i know...that's why i made the in-joke joke.
Rebecca Davis is an institution.
I agree with COMTE and michael strangeways - how do you not know who Rebecca Davis is? I can't remember the last time I saw local theater (er...maybe I shouldn't admit that) and even I know she is Teh Bomb.
money @2...I have to disagree with you. I think Nick has am amazing arsenal of comic timing and pop culture references.
Jackie Hell has been in many Brown Derbies and is the sickest bitch in show business. I mean that in a good way.
@ number 2- sad to say I agree! I have been going to these wonderful shows for more years than I'd like to admit *cough cough*, and I'm ready for some variety! The other actors sparkle and there's been some great new talent but I'm sorry, NG is hashing out the same old drag and the same old jokes in the same old way. Ready for something different! Sorry, I'm a bitch!
Hmm. Isn't a requirement to work for the Stranger the ability to form coherent thoughts in writing?
well, frankly, everyone in Brown Derby is retarded and I all wish they lived in a group home so I could burn it down and replace it with a new outlet for Mars Hill...or a Lover's Pantry.
Who is the coward posing as the money tree caterpillar? It is so hard to consider the source when they are in hiding. As a collaborator of Mr. Garrison's for over 10 years, I can say I have never worked with someone so incredibly creative and someone who plays the moment in everything he does. And if you are at all interested in what the Brown Derby aspires to ( see: Ludlum and the Ridiculous Theatre, campfire skits and the silliness of British panto) you would know that having a "call back" or a recurring character or bit is something to be savored and enjoyed again.
