Over the meh-ness

Tantrum had our "business meeting" on Monday. We had "wine," drank "beer" and made "decisions." 

And I, for one, am pretty happy with all of them—but even more so because it felt like, as different as each of our goals are as improvisers, we want to get the same thing out of Tantrum. 

Which is: We want to do good shows, make people laugh and be proud of what we’ve done. (I didn't have to work that hard, Pete—it kinda turned itself into a mission statement.)

Next year should be a busier year for us than this one—we'll know more about dates in the coming weeks. 

For now, we get to focus on our last public show of the year: A split show with Corey & Mo's The Union and a chance to work with Tom Farnan as our monologist. It's Friday night at 8pm at the Westport Coffeehouse. (We'll do a short, get-to-know-you rehearsal with Tom tonight.) The Pitch put in a nice plug for us—especially nice because our shows have been consistent enough that we got an unqualified, poster-quality blurb: "daring, scene-based improvisation of one of our best local troupes."

So, you know, come see it.
