Yes Shame has been good in the past, so uh, maybe it will be good in the future?Okay, commence reviewing.
There were two good pieces that I remember; Sophie's monologue about how she is better than me, and Eleni's food rap. Also Emmy had Sarah perform a Valentiney monologue. Did Mike have a piece?
"A Message From Your Congressman" by Eli will not be appearing in Best of Yes Shame this Tuesday.I just want to note that we all should be following school rules before, after, and during Yes Shame, because (like real Shame's use of the UI Theater building) the school is actually doing us a big favor by letting us perform there after hours with very limited supervision, and in return we should respect the property and its rules. Any more problems could give the office an excuse to simply shut Yes Shame down; let's avoid that at all costs.Also: Since Tareq will unfortunately be out of the country next week, there will be no "Cello jammin'" in Best Of. They'll be back next semester though, after BOYS, with more cool music; so you have that to look forward to.
