Sitting in my office I heard the sound of tech Marie Cartier doing Dan Hoyle’s rap from EACH AND EVERYTHING. I went down to see what the hey…and there she was not only doing his rap word for word, but she had Each and Every move!

Marie was teaching tech Brittany the show. With Each and Every Thing being extended, she needed a substitute tech for an upcoming performance.

Wow, I thought, our techs are amazing! I pulled out my IPhone and videoed. (I had just heard a Fresh Air interview with the filmmaker, Tangerine, who made the movie with his IPhone 5. Well I had an IPhone 6. I too could give it a try.)

Well, let me tell you, videoing was a cinch, but getting off my phone, not so obvious. In fact it took me so long, the weekly newsletter had a week vacation.

So, three things. 

Performer Impersonation
First, send me a 30-second video of an impersonation of Dan from any of his shows or an impersonation of any performer from a Marsh show for that matter. From your submissions, we will choose a “winner” who will be awarded two free tickets to a Marsh performance. (Email video to marsh@themarsh.org and let us know if you are willing to post it on Marsh social media sites.)

Social Media Workshop August 11
Secondly, if you are interested in learning more about social media, we are offering a one-time workshop on Tuesday, August 11, starting at 6:30 pm that will focus on Facebook, twitter and Instagram. Click here to find out more and sign up for the event.

I will most definitely be there. I am really enjoying social “medializing.” I am also befuddled by the whole #hashtag thing.

Win 2 Tix to Dan Hoyle’s Each and Every Thing
Thirdly, the first five to use the passcode, Pratim, will win 2 comps to this Friday, July 31, performance. Click here.

Kornbluth’s LOVE AND TAXES, The movie

On another note, just saw a film last night, not made on an IPhone. It was the PREMIERE of Josh and Jake Kornbluth’s Love and Taxes. It was fantastic. And wow, in many ways it was a lovesong to The Marsh. Also, Marsh Mascot Trinity, makes her film debut! Brief but potent 🙂 Check out her pink coat costuming.

It plays again on Monday, August 3, 8:30 pm at the California in Berkeley as part of the Jewish Film Festival. Click here and use  the passcode “guest35” for a discounted ticket.

All my best,
