A Very Special Episode - Family Ties - Say Uncle
This is a re-posting of the second offering for "A Very Special Episode." wherein we did staged readings/ interpretations of old sitcoms (particularly the ones of a "Very Special" nature).
In this one, we offer our take on Family Ties. It was previously released on soundcloud.
Quick Synopsis of the Concept.
As I read the commentary and supply extra direction and misdirection it sometimes leads us to unscripted territory. We use several different comedic tools and vehicles to spice things up from show to show. Sometimes I'll ask a scene to be re-read with different accents, or we'll swap parts, or I'll ask my cast to improvise the whole scene over again with a new input or switch to the attitude.
All that being said, heres the episode specific information:
This is the episode where we started to figure things out and take a more editorial spin on the scripts. We had a good time, but still had several bugs to work out.
