Whoa whoa whoa, ok, maybe I should have told you when I’d be back, but that’s not true, your grandmother is perfectly capable of watching you. She doesn’t hate you and I don’t care if she doesn’t let you play Playstation, you need to listen to her, she’s your elder. I know, but I need to, daddy has work, you know that.
So there’s been some developments in my campaign of misinformation and terror. Several new projects are in different stages of disarray completion. The most recently completed of which is a project to help coax my friend theyoungandthetasteless (who has also gone dark) back into the world online self promotion. She is now starring in her own (wildly popular and critically acclaimed) one-woman adaptation of the 1975 documentary Grey Gardens. As amazing as the show is reported to be, it was clear that while boundary pushing theater filled with tasteful nudity is one of TYATT’s strengths, web design is not. So we compiled a crack team of web designers and copy writers and made her a website. The best part is that we did it Extreme Makeover Home Edition style – complete with secrecy, a vaguely homosexual project manager, and a grand reveal in front of her best friends. She just found out about the existence of the new website and the play may or may not even exist, but the website is amazing – completely top of the line. I mean, I’m pretty sure it has to be true, I read it on the internet (Wikipedia) and we’ve been selling tickets. A lot of tickets. So if she doesn’t want to ruin her reputation on the colicky Off-Broadway scene before she even gets off the ground, this play needs to happen fast. Maybe her life is the adaptation. It’s kind of like that movie Inception. I don’t know how, but it is.
You can read all about the retelling of the Edie’s struggle through a condensed, 180 minute cat and nudity filled “riot” of a one-woman show on the upper west side of Manhattan here. If you’re fortunate connected enough to snag tickets, let me know how it is.
For those unfamiliar with the story of Grey Gardens, here are some clips:
