1. Intervention by Lilly
Man, next semester I will have better crap.

2. Extreme Stripping by Eli
Excellent.

2.5 An Honest To Goodness Confession by O'Sandra
Yeah

3. The Truth About Bodies by Margo
So, this would have been a fabulous build up to a comedic monologue. It's an original idea, and the delivery was good. Then... there wasn't a monologue to go with it. So I'm thinking if you put more time in to actually writing things they will be A+ material. Of course this is coming from the person who threw together a piece an hour before Yes Shame... but of course, the audience could tell that mine wasn't very good, which is exactly what I'm trying to say.

4. Actual, Real-Life, Not Fake Conversation Between Three People by Lily Chong and John and Rica Kenyon
This was funny. It is being allowed in BOYS, however, only under the condition that the musical bit is shortened to keep the piece under 5 minutes. I will talk to you about this, and we can let Doug know when to start turing down the music so you can get your last line in. The dancing was a nice touch, but it went on much to long and got rather tedious. There's no reason we need to hear the whole song at Best Of.

5. College Search by Sophie, King
Aha... she maybe shouldn't have issued an open invitation to come on stage, because the people who didn't have scripts basically screwed the pooch, so the jokes at the end got messed up, and the scene felt more chaotic than it should have been. Still an interesting piece though, and original.

5.5 Have Super Christmas by Lilly and O'Sandra
Ah

6. Ode To A Cute Guy by Lily Chong
You should do a different one every week, and for a different guy each time. OHWAIT

7. Song by King Sophie
Thumbs up

9. Morgan's Poem
Uh it was pretty emo.

10. The Alphabet by Faith
Haha Faith is awesome.

11. All About A Lovely Girl by Emmy & Morgan
Okay so we accidentally didn't give Morgan credit for this piece when we were announcing the BOYS order oops! She apparently was kind of upset? Sorry Morgan! It was a good piece! We really liked it!

12. The Lunatic and the Madman by Annessa Olsen
There were some good lines, but really, stuff like this is the reason we have a 5-minute rule at Yes Shame. True, it's rather artistically/theatrically restrictive to basically limit you to short punchy stuff, but Yes Shame has two purposes: 1) to provide young writers and actors with a forum for theatrical experience and 2) to entertain the audience. Given that the audience has discerning taste and a short attention span, longer pieces should either be cut down or taken elsewhere.
Having said that, however, Annessa shows promise as a writer and I hope she decides to do another (shorter) piece in the future!

13. Rhetorical Questions by Emmy
This was good. Emmy just keeps improving. Whereas my stuff just keeps deteriorating. Don't peak too soon kids! It's bad news.

Anyway, in conclusion, I will return triumphantly after break with pieces so amazing that the sheer sinful pleasure of watching them will make you go blind. And then I will make fun of you.

Also, be careful of your sarcasm, because somepeople might not understand, and take it that you actually mean it, if you know what I'm saying. . .

I didn't use the whole song at Yes Shame because it would have been over 5 minutes.
Woo hoo.
And thanks for once for letting one of my pieces in BOYS.
