Over the past month we've done tons of shows outside the confines our our wonderful Riot theater! Not only did we get accepted to our first festival, The NYC Improv Fest hosted by the PIT, but also were asked to open for a wonderful new indie team called Poseidon and play in Comedy Lab, both of which were at ImprovBoston. In the next month we'll also be opening for the Con Men, and playing at ImprovBoston's Harold Night. Being asked and accepted to perform across the city has been a great experience for us.
As already mentioned, we had a huge Naffy trip to NYC where we performed at The Pit Loft as a part of the NYC Improv Festival. We were able to use one of Jeff's old connections to do a workshop with John Murray of Death by Roo Roo and Goat. Since that workshop, we've gone back to doing a pure monoscene and working on our improv craft which has been intensely rewarding. We all got to meet and perform for our friends and family down in NYC which was also a really great time. All in all, I think Naffy made the most of its NYC trip.
Our shows continue to succeed and be well attended. We've had a few new press releases including being featured in Boston Magazine which caught us by surprise. Reservation numbers and butts in seats have both steadily been on the climb. We've introduced new concessions and Buie is now trying to make home made cookies for each show. We've been so thankful to have a host of talent continue to open for our show, and we've loved being able to give Summer Boyfriend, Midy Zevlin, The Gorge and 20 Minute Movie a fantastic and loving JP audience to perform for.
More than all of this though we just have loved to continue to put on a sold out, and extremely funny show in Jamaica Plain. We're feeling more at ease in our little theater, and our shows have showcased that confidence week in and week out. Thank you to every audience member who has come to any of our shows. Thank you to every team and performer who has come to open for us. Thank you, still, to the wonderful Joe Gels who is the AD of the Riot and has continued to believe in what we're trying to do. And from just me, thank you to Jeff, Marissa, Ben and Andrew for giving me a group that feels like an absolute blast to be a part of.
