Featuring poems by Tony Russell, Patsy Asuncion, and BK Marcus, and improv by Nauder Namaky, Marjory Ruderman, David Luzader, Kelsey Keverline, and me. We all had a blast!

Thanks to the Belmont Arts Collaborative and everyone who came out! We’re looking at another edition sometime in the fall!

frontporchjune Saturday was Big Blue Door Improv at The Front Porch. It was the second performance by brand new summer groups Compact Fun and Dancing Pilots, and Big Blue Door’s final show at The Front Porch for awhile.

hot sauceCompact Fun (Keaton Ray, Larry Goldstein, Deborah Arenstein, John Lawrence, and Erik Swanson) started with a harold inspired by the suggestion ‘Sprinkler.’ Then Dancing Pilots (David Luzader, Todd Kasen, Kirk Martini, Susan Gorman, Deborah Prum, and Marjory Ruderman) performed a set inspired by ‘Disney.’ Finally both groups combined for a montage of scenes from rapid suggestions of ‘Birthday,’ ‘Derby,’ ‘Gymnastics,’ and ‘Donut.’ Highlights of the night include police with a secret crush, MTV’s senior rapper show, the mystery of Pluto and Goofy’s existential relationship to one another, and a tough gymnastics coach.
