Last night we were treated to a 15 minute world premiere of an original production of “You Must Be Talking,” a musical in one act. (I am not kidding about the 15 minutes: This has been edited down a lot. A LOT.) I would say more, but I think at this point I will just let the work speak for itself.
Highlights: “little tiny nose” at 2:16, taste-testing at 2:37, and the cryptic (but oh-so essential to the plot, methinks) very last line. Oh, and the wardrobe. The authentic yogurt-staining on the costume really helped set the scene for me, and made me feel like I was right there in that country with the pigs and the dinosaurs.
So without further ado, I invite you to sit back and enjoy the show.
