SCHOOL...THAT'S ALL IT IS...BACK TO SCHOOL.
I know that I haven't updated for a long time. That is probably because there hasn't really been anything going on.
However, today was a very special day for THE HISTORY BOYS. Today, we performed the show for almost 2,000 high schoolers from all around the Los Angeles area.
Needless to say, we were a little anxious about what it was going to be like.
2000 teens + 1 dense script + plenty of sexual humor=POSSIBLE DISASTER!
I am pleased to report that my math skills (like always) were completely wrong. I can honestly say (and I speak for all of my cast mates) that this was one of our best audiences yet. They were attentive, on top of the references, and really responsive!
We had such a fun time performing the show, because it was like performing it for the first time.
If any of the high school students get ahold of this blog and are reading it right now, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for making these shows outstanding. You were truly a great breath of fresh air!
We have one more student show tomorrow and I already know it's going to be wonderful.
After that....ONLY 5 MORE PERFORMANCES LEFT!!!!
