Day 124 – May 4, 2018

Tide. – DWP

Two down, one to go. I really think that the prompt gods are smiling down on me because, so far, they are perfectly paired with the show weekend. Let’s hope I didn’t jinx it for tomorrow. Tonight’s performance fits the prompt perfectly. Using tide as a metaphor. The overall response was the same as last night, but it was a tale of two acts. Act one, the audience needed time to catch on to what they were watching. Admittedly if you didn’t know anything about Disaster, it is really different than your normal musical. The show is based on the disaster movies along with songs of the 70s. It is written in a way that songs are intertwined with dialogue and lyrics so you don’t know when a song begins and where a line of dialogue ends. And with the chaos of the disaster itself, it is something that if you haven’t heard or seen, well it tends to make a person think wtf is happening right now. But that’s what makes this show so much fun. And once the audience realizes what is happening and put pieces together it hits them and it results in a delayed response. So the show tonight had two distinct acts. It took until the end of act one for the audience to warm up, but by act two they settled in and responded heartedly. I admit I was nervous about it. But once the tide was out, I knew it would come back in. The pictured above is the final scene of the show when all the disaster victims are preparing to be rescued. As the show is set on a riverboat casino, they end up floating along the tide and current at sea. I think I will actually miss this show when we are close tomorrow night. But don’t tell anyone I said that.
