Like a meme with concrete results.

Our third show of the primetime season is going to be called You Asked For It!, assembled by Greg Allen. It is not, strictly, "written" by Greg, as the premise of the show, based on the work of conceptual artists Komar and Melamid1, is to craft a pair of plays based on a far-reaching survey of Americans, asking them what they would "most" and "least" like to see onstage. Based on these responses, the Neo-Futurists will then perform the play that amalgamates what the survey sample most desired of live theater, and then the same evening perform the play that is naught but what you would least like to see.

Kooky? Potentially disastrous? You bet! Aren't you curious?

If you'd like a voice in this project, you can take the online survey here. Thus far, Greg has amassed about 1000 responses in two weeks, hitting 45 of 50 states. (If you're interested in helping him fill his cartographical bingo card, please pass the survey on to any friends you have in Oklahoma, New Mexico, South Carolina, and both Dakotas.)

Thanks from Greg in advance.


1 Both of whom, incidentally, are excited by the project and are acting as consultants of sorts.
