Opening night was Friday. We had a fair size audience (49) and great participation. The audience laughed at everything. Even at things the cast never considered. Even when JOEL and SARAH are having their serious argument, there was laughter. Even then, Amy and I were both thinking: “That’s not funny”. Overall it was great and the audience loved it. Lane was also very pleased. The cast on the other hand, had a few major traumas, which I hope the audience did not notice too much.
On Saturday night, the crowed was much larger (70-80). The cast had settled down from the night before and things went very smooth. The reception for the two nights was very favorable. Enough so that Lane is thinking of doing the sequel Jest A Second with the same cast.
