TMI Round 2 - All New Material!
"I hope this isn't TMI, but..."
How many times have we all been on either end of a conversation that began that way?
For some reason, sharing TMI "Too Much Information" tends to be a guilty pleasure for both divulger and divulgee. On both ends, there's something incredibly cathartic and connective about revealing our deepest and darkest. We are inclined to believe it's actually good for us all, so no reason to feel guilty.
That's the philosophy behind TMI, our production of non-fiction monologues written by the women who perform them. The personal is universal, and by sharing the parts of stories many of us typically leave out for public consumption our writers/performers help to reveal common threads in all our lives. The secret parts are the ones we most long to share and hear. In telling and hearing them, we get connected. In our experience, storyteller and viewer alike leave the show with a new understanding of their experiences, and a new openness. We've heard on many occasions that audience members share juicy morsels in car rides home that they never would have discussed otherwise.
What people said after the premiere at the Shadowland Theatre:
"It was a riveting night. The direction, the writing and the performing was courageous, innovative and really a voice of reality about what it is to be on the learning curve that is life...Thanks for putting in all of the hard work and creativity... full steam ahead!!"
"Still so touched and thinking about the show Friday. Mmmm mmmm, like sitting in a hot Baptist church waiving my fan type of Amen, mmm hmmm."
"Last night was my first TMI and I was simply bowled over. WOW! Thank you!!"
"Last year's was great...this year is FANTASTIC!!!!!!! BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!"
"I was SO moved by TMI last night. Last year's production blew me away.. this one touched even deeper places...Humor, tenderness, sadness, joy, strength, courage, beauty, vulnerability... Made me go to my own raw places...Thank you for a truly delicious evening that will linger on in my spirit/soul - the way passages and images created by a good book comes up over and over again as life unfolds."
