Bright Lights, Big City

The Marsh event last night was a good time. A different kind of reading than any I've done before. It was held at a performance theatre in the Mission neighborhood of San Francisco. An intimate horseshoe theatre that let the audience sit close to the stage. For us, the set consisted of a music stand for a podium and a lone microphone.

I was first to go up, and nearly blinded by the stage lights. It has been a long time since I've acted on stage(high school), and I'd forgotten about the brightness. We couldn't see the audience, just darkness. Dim silhouettes and hazy outlines of people sitting in the front rows was all that I could make out.

I read most of "A Prude in Patpong" from Sand In My Bra and did my best to look to all parts of the theatre. The six of us read from paper, as no one had memorized their "travel(mono)logues." But I tried to look up as often as I could, smile and pause appropriately, and gesture as needed. Mostly, I stood with my hands behind my back because I didn't know what else to do with them and didn't want them just hanging neanderthal-like at my side. The audience laughed and I was happy, but had no idea how the others were going to read. Or perform?
