Post long-form Improvisation delight disorder

How can I possibly explain to you what it was like to enter a completely private and calm scene between a rancher widow Frances and the pastor, take out a gun and shoot the pastor dead without saying anything? How can I describe to you the hysterical shakes I got as I came off stage and the ‘reality’ of what I had done started sinking in? How can I explain the fear, arriving on the ranch and discovering that the rancher widow owned it and she has witnessed my murder?

This is what happened to me, before I got fatally shot by the justice obsessed school teacher, last night, on stage in front of a live audience. And we made the whole thing up. It was radical. Of course there were too many loose ends, and certain things happened that were a little undone, and things got a little over-exposed plot wise, but who cares?

The journey of themed long-form improv has been an extraordinary one, for me, for the group and of course, for our audiences. I can say with total clarity that this is acting and feeling and responding in its most thrilling and rewarding form. It feels like you are hyper-alive, connected electrically with the creative universe. And it is totally addictive. I don’t know how I am ever going to be able to do anything else and love it as much.

Luckily I have three shows left this week. I am going to have to wean myself back into the real world slowly. Really, I am totally confident about recommending that you come and watch this unbelievable magic. Check out Improguise for details for the rest of the week.

  1. Totally know what you mean. And totally love that picture of you, Missy Megan.

  2. i would believe you… because i was there – witnessing the chemistry on stage, seeing the chaotic shakes you are talking about after shooting down the pastor for reasons no one knew at the time and for seeing you gunned down in front of me [and being unable to do any good justice thanks to the black card i pulled secretly at the beginning of the show designating me a non shooter… well til that moment] – thank you Megan for letting me be such an involved part of this crazy world for over ten years and for persevering with me and my pointless originality through good and bad and extreme and weird – it has rocked! as do you…
