Anybody shocked by this revelation? Didn't think so.

Short form style PLAY is easy for just about any audience to enjoy and not regret spending their hard-earned cash.

Is it an art form? Sure...why not. To be honest, I could care less because I did not start doing this for the "art". I started becase I saw a show once, liked it, auditioned and got cast....that was 11 years ago.

Yes, I took a ton of workshops and learned many styles and lessons from some of the best in the industry. The best lesson that I learned was from doing a run of bad shows where I just was not having any fun....I forgot that I was PLAYing.

PLAY PLAY PLAY!!! Say it out load and then go watch children play tag or cops and robbers on a playground and then enjoy your smile!

A nice balance of strong scene work (beleive it or not, some of the best story arcs can occur in under 3 minutes) and rules-oriented scene structures...lol....GAMES make for a truly wonderful Maestro.

It's interesting how, over the past year, the enthusiasm for PLAYing in Maestro has dwindled. I blame it on overstructuring. You should not have to build a process around this show. It has a strong format that cannot be denied.

What is needed:
10-14 PLAYers knowlegable in the stuff that will be PLAYed that show
1 or 2 director(s) fully prepared before the show
1 or 2 tech who add to the show quality

Thats it...no scorekeeper, no host.

I would like to do two things:

First: I would like to run a FREE workshop on all those FANTASTIC GAMES that you have always wanted to either learn how to play or learn how to PLAY!

Second: I would love to direct a run of Maestros and do my best to make sure all that PLAY have a great time for themselves as well as the audience (but if the former happens, well the later is WAY automatic).

What do ya say folks? Wanna PLAY?

I wanna play with Dav!

I was going to stay out of this, but "Micetro" is not dumb. Making the unilateral decision to change it was dumb.

When I first saw the word "micetro" I didn't know how to pronounce it, even though it is a simpler version of the word we now use.

It's like "Kwik Kar Wash".

C'mon. I'd expect a show like that to be in a small texas town where the Rowdy Rustlin' Players perform one act plays for old people and families.

Speaking of small texas towns, I'm in one now, and should get back to vacationing.

woooooooo spring break!!!!

I will totally be in that troupe with you. You don't have to ask twice.
