The Kiss

Thanks again to everyone in Kansas City. We performed with Tantrum at The Westport Coffeehouse and had a blast!

We're back home now, ready for the Annoyance Theater tonight at 7pm.
Hope you can make it! "Ward & June Are Dead", we'll help you feel better about your own family by showing you how disfunctional ours is.

Here's an appetizer to get you ready for the show...the newest Union video.

Ada's reviews

I'd like to introduce you to a friend of ours. Her name is Ada. She's 4 years old, adorable and super smart, which of course makes her hilarious. She recently (with the help of her mom) started a blog. If you're looking for a good read, laugh or review of some of the latest books and theatrical pieces throughout the city this is a good link to check out.

Our show is too adult for her or else I'd welcome her review. She did how ever watch our "bad date" video. According to her mom, she loved it until Corey threw the candy in my face. We're not sure if she was more offended by the meanness of it or the waste of candy.

Enjoy Ada's blog!

Show biz

Things are staying busy for us as always.

The opening of Ward & June Are Dead went well. We had a nice crowd and great response. Lots of fun!

In the meantime work is going well. We both got calls by a few agents. Corey auditioned for one on Saturday (I couldn't...had to work) and has a couple more after the holiday.

Unrelated to the show, I booked a new gig myself. I am a host for an e-learning project for high school and middle school learners. I got to shoot with a green screen and do a lot of voice over work. It was a great learning experience and resume building and was a ton of fun. Hopefully these jobs keep coming along.

On Monday we head to Iowa for a corporate show to do improv and custom scenes. These are always fun, especially when I haven't learned my lines yet. From there, we'll head to Kansas City. I'm really looking forward to spending time with family and eating a ton. Plus on the Friday after Thanksgiving, we'll do a mini version of our show at The Westport coffee house. I'd love for our KC friends can make it to Chicago to see the full version, but if not, this will be a good chance to see our work.

For those of you in Chicago, if you haven't checked out the show yet come see us tonight at 7pm at The Annoyance! If you have seen it, pass the word along!

Toledo, not Ohio

Though we liked Madrid, we'd felt we'd seen all we wanted and were ready to get away from the hectic big city. Still, we had another day planned there. After a little research, we decided to take a 30 minute train ride to Toledo. The city is beautiful, located at the top of a cliff. This is just the train station folks!After leaving the station there's a long walk to the main part of the city which is surrounded by an ancient way. Once again it was a long climb uphill. The view of the valley and river was absolutely worth it.

Of course since it was a Saturday, I couldn't get away from weddings. These brides follow me everywhere!Toledo is known for several things, quaint shops, an ancient cathedral, some ancient Sephardic synagogues and marzipan (yum!). The town is most proud for being the inspiration for Cervantes, "Don Quixote." He's revered in this little town.

The people were very friendly. It was really nice to be in a slower paced town. We ended the day sitting at a cafe, enjoying a glass of wine with manchego cheese, a local favorite. After which, we walked back to the train station from the other side of town just in time to catch a beautiful sunset.

We give Toledo 5 out of 5 marzipan's!
