Len, I haven't read Impro, no... is it a must read??

Neil/Martha - I counted the chairs today. 48. ... Which is why I don't
normally like to count the chairs... it looks like more than that when
they're full.

    "Slaughter on 10th Avenue" is very definitely Rodgers & Hart --
Gene Kelly and Vera-Ellen dance it in WORDS AND MUSIC, the MGM revue
that's their biography from some parallel universe.  I can't remember
now which show it's from, and the book that would tell me is hiding at
the moment.

Dan-- I think it's essential-- much more readable than Spolin, and
maybe a little less starry-eyed too.  Most of my improv buddies think
of it as their bible. What are your must reads, theater wise?

Len - I'm quite  terrible about reading about theatre... but I do
swear the The Empty Space by Peter Brook...

Dan-- agreed--it's a wonderful book... it always makes me think twice
about whether what I'm creating is "deadly theatre."

Folks, we are seriously drifting away from conversation with Neil about
American Gods, so I am going to freeze this topic now, and ask you all
kindly to continue over in topic 115.
