I can’t believe it’s almost here!
The first EVER Keanu! The Musical Table Reading in beautiful San Francisco!
I’m thrilled that I get to work with so many talented people and can not wait to see how they bring these characters to life!
Here’s a little scoop about this fantastic cast:
David Carr Berry (aka KEANU): The moment I met DCB, I wanted to be his friend. There was some mysterious element to him that I wanted to figure out. The more I investigated the more we became friends and I saw the good natured, intelligent, funny individual he is. Becoming his friend didn’t break the magic of his mystery and maybe that’s why he makes the perfect Keanu. Come see for yourself on Saturday!
Max McCal (aka GHOST PATRICK SWAYZE): Max is one of the funniest people I know and it only makes sense that he is part of one of the best improv groups in San Francisco, EndGames Improv. When I was introduced to Max we had an instant bond of ridiculousness and just wanting to make people laugh. We could honestly joke back and forth for days, nights, and maybe years. But we probably shouldn’t because it might end the world with too much funny. I know Max is going to bring a fun element to this reading and his performances are not to be missed. HE’S PLAYING GHOST PATRICK SWAYZE for christ sake!!!
Laura Lahti (aka SANDRA BULLOCK): Laura is pretty much a bad-ass. She is able to juggle a lot all at once but always knows how to let loose and have a good time. I’m thrilled this wonderfully, talented woman is part of the cast and I know she’ll bring the sassa-tude needed for good ole Sandra Bullock. Come see for yourself!
Matt McMonagle (aka BILL): I don’t even know how to describe the awesome-ness of Matt. He’s just too awesome for any kind of words known in the English language. We instantly became best buds the moment we met and I’m pretty sure we are long lost siblings. Matt is one of the nicest guys you’ll meet and always smiling. Whenever I’m having an off day he always cheers me up. He’s guaranteed to cheer you up too with his Most Triumphant performance of Bill! Just wait and see.
Adam Amler (aka Crispen Glover, The Devil, Dustin Hoffman): Adam was one of my first friends when I moved here 3 years ago from Ohio. He’s one of my best buds, always making me laugh and going on random fantastic adventures. We also like to get highly caffeinated and watch tv shows, which is all I really require in a friend. Adam is amazing and one of the most talented musicians/songwriters I know. Come see him on Saturday and see for yourself.
Matt Jackson (aka Christopher Lloyd, Gary Buesy, Jeff Daniels, Al Pacino, Kevin Bacon): The moment I met Matt I liked him. He’s always seems to be having a great time no matter where he’s and always happy to see you. He’s got great energy and just wait until you hear his Gary Buesy impression! I’m so happy he’s reading and he’ll bring the fun for sure!
Monica Leong (aka George Carlin, Shia LaBeouf, Laurence Fishburne, River Phoenix): Monica is my nerd counterpart and can geek out with me at a moments notice. Monica is not only a nerd but also a cool, creative cat lady, which probably also helps in our friendship. I’m ecstatic she’s a part of the reading and think she’ll really bring out the magic in her characters. Get reading. It’s gonna be a wild and crazy ride!
Adam Van Der Veer (aka Rachel Weisz, Carrie Anne Moss, Charlize Theron, The Maid): I consistently saw Adam every morning at the coffee shop I worked at, both of us still sleepy from lack of caffeine. Adam is an awesome talented person and has a cat named David Duchovny. What else is there to say? Come see him perform these lovely ladies on Saturday. You won’t be disappointed. Promise.
Kevin VanScoder (aka The Narrator): Yes, he has some resemblance to Jeff Goldblum and Yes, he may be my husband but just wait until you hear him read the action points in the script. You’ll be impressed. Kevin is amazing and I’m not just saying it because we’re married. He’s a talented film maker and creative poet. He’s also the best partner a girl could ask for putting up with my Keanu obsession for the past few years. Come hear his soothing voice on Saturday and enjoy!
Andrew Rahman (aka The Music Guy): I’m excited to have Andrew be part of this table reading doing live music and videos the entire time. We’ve been working for months on sound and songs and we can’t wait for you to hear them. He’s so talented and I’m honored to have him helping me on this musical! Come hear him and the sounds he’s created on Saturday!
It should be a MOST EXCELLENT TIME!
