Mr. Right Enough

Dating has never been so … digital.

Marietta, GA – If you’re single, then having a sexy MySpace, eHarmony, or any online dating profile is critical, right? Your image is everything. But what happens when the things you list aren’t exactly true: You’re much shorter than 6’2″, you don’t make $300,000 a year, and you still live in your parents’ basement.

Example picIn the Blank Stage’s original Mr. Right-enough, the idea of the perfect profile is flipped completely upside down when our hero decides to take matters into his own hands. By creating the anti-MySpace social networking website and encouraging everyone to list only their major flaws, a mini-revolution sparks and our hero finds himself in a place he never thought he would end up… on top of the social food chain.

In The Blank Stage’s latest romantic comedy Mr. Right-enough, themes of individuality and true love shine through. Fortunately for all of those that missed the first run, the cast is delighted to come back and do it again. “Since all of our shows are original, we never really know how they are going pan out, so with Mr. Right-enough we decided to produce a small, limited run,” says director Vas Sanchez.

“Due to sell-out crowds, repeat business and just how much fun the show is we all feel this is the right move.”

Blank Stage brings its unique brand of theme based, long-form, narrative improv back to the stage with a second run of the romantic comedy Mr. Right-enough. Each show is completely different as real life audience members are profiled and portrayed live onstage, each night. Questions like “What is your most annoying habit?” or “what would you never put on a your MySpace profile?” are used as the foundation for each character and placed into the matrix of the romantic comedy story line.

Does the idea of just showing up freak you out?

Don’t worry, you certainly don’t have to participate in filling out the audience profiles. While this show is an original date option, Mr. Right-enough has a little something for everybody. For the ladies it has those tug-at-your-heart type moments with a real complex love story, for the guys the show is loaded with plenty of eye candy and sophomoric humor.

A short message on vouchers from Gail

THERE’S RECENTLY BEEN A PROBLEM WITH GETTING PAPERWORK DONE ON JOBS, MAKING BOOKKEEPING AND BILLPAY HARDER.  WE ALL WANT THINGS TO RUN SMOOTHLY, ESPECIALLY WHEN PAYMENT IS INVOLVED.  IF YOU WANT TO RECEIVE PAYMENT ON A JOB AS SOON AS POSSIBLE YOU NEED TO REMEMBER THE BASICS:

VOUCHERS. 

EVERY NON-UNION JOB MUST BE VOUCHERED, NO EXCEPTIONS.  VOUCHERS ARE TO BE IN THIS OFFICE WITHIN 24 HOURS OF YOUR COMPLETION OF THE JOB.

SAG/AFTRA CONTRACTS

COPIES ARE TO BE IN THIS OFFICE WITHIN 24 HOURS OF YOUR COMPLETION OF THE JOB.

FOLLOWING THESE SIMPLY STEPS WILL HELP OUT IN A LARGE WAY AND MAKE PAYMENT ON JOBS MUCH EASIER (AND LESS OF A HEADACHE!)

Thanks,

Gail
