Premiere of Boys Don’t Cry at Studio 34

07/15/2010

It’s the third Thursday of the month, and KING FRIDAY will be putting on their monthly show at Studio 34. Tonight their guest is the premiere of the new duo, BOYS DON’T CRY, featuring ANDY MOSKOWITZ and TODD SHAEFFER, directed by MATT HOLMES. We took a moment to chat with the boys and their director about this new partnership and what we can expect.

How did this come about?

We were waiting in line to see Where the Wild Things Are and sparked up a conversation about (our) mutual love of improvisation.

And this is the first time you’ve worked together?

Yep, n00bz!

So what are your thoughts on joining forces?

Should be interesting. We have grown a lot as actors and performers working together. Slowly getting our groove and creating some magical stuff.

magic in a bottle

What’s the premise?

Two dudes, doing the ‘prov. (The show is) still searching for its niche.

What can we expect tonight?

We are still in our incubator… not trying to do anything crazy. But you can expect some pure emotion and a lot of fun discovery.

Any thoughts on the future of the show?

Future hasn’t been written yet. No ones has. Your future is whatever you make it, so make it a good one. We’re giving it a shot… getting the show on the road… and we’ll see where it goes.
