ShawnMikael(s) in CoHi: Tanned, Rested & Ready
Shawn got married. Mikael was best man. Shawn went to Portugal for his honeymoon and returned speaking with an accent (weirdly, it's German rather than Portuguese). Mikael stayed here in the DC area, looking at photos of Shawn while sobbing; both are itching to get back on stage and hope that things haven't gotten too weird between them. But, in case they have, they're bringing along some fantastic local troupes to rock Studio 1469: DC's own Pone Pony Poni and Baltimore's Gus:
Pone Pony Poni is:
And finally, us, ShawnMikael(s):
Our Host? It's hilarious stand-up comic, storyteller (veteran of both SpeakEasyDC and Story League stages), and host of his own monthly show Reggie Melbrough!
But: you can't see any of it unless you buy a ticket. And you know how that works: we only can sell a total of 5 (FIVE!) at the door. So get yours early and often...
Remember: Studio 1469 is BYOB!: Keep in mind that the space doesn't sell alcohol. However, you are welcome to bring your own alcoholic beverages to the show (provided, of course, you are of legal drinking age and aren't a gargantuan douche).
ShawnMikael(s) merchandise (read: "cool logo-emblazoned t-shirts") will be on sale. $15 each, available in all sizes
The Space: Studio 1469 (http://studio1469.com/), located in the rear of 1469 Harvard Street, is not your normal performance space: one part artist's hideaway, one part "white-box" theater, it's a hidden gem in bustling Columbia Heights. Please note that access isn't available on Harvard Street, but by entering via the alley off 15th Street between Harvard Street and Columbia Road. Once in the alley, walk straight to the end, where you'll find the space. More information. Directions, and a map are available here:
Show up: if you do, Shawn promises not to corner you and make you scroll through all the wedding/engagement photos on his iPhone.
