Christwire was recently contacted and asked if our in depth stories could be used for a monologue in a play called “Blogologues”. Knowing that this play will be held in the heart of liberalism (NYC), we feel by allowing them to use our stories of uplifting Christianity, it might help inspire a few American hating New Yorkers to grow up and follow the path of God.
If you live in the area or will be in the area during the listed dates, please buy a ticket and be entertained by some lovely hipsters reenacting God’s word.

We’re part of a six month series at UNDER St. Marks in which we perform new blogologues every month. The next rendition will only be on November 28th at 7:30 and 9:30 PM, but tickets are on sale now at smarttix.com for November as well as the rest of the series. Our December date is Friday the 30th and our January date is Monday the 30th, all at 7:30/9:30. Tickets are $15 including a beer. For more information visit our site: livelyproductions.org.
Blogologues™ brings your favorite blog posts to the stage– as well as other wacky online material that probably shouldn’t be read out loud.

A hilarious romp through the interwebs.

She hails from Florida, but is glad to be going on her third year of actually having seasons. She would like to thank GOD, Spankie, and the hilarious cast that has enlightened her spiritually, mmmmmm, spiritually!
I am pleased that they will use our Fellowships good words, but the “Free Beer” with a ticket purchase seems wrong. Who wants a bunch of drunks in a theater?
Those two white girls, Allison Goldberg and Jen Jamula need some chocolate! I’d like to pound their Pink Velveeta Shells.
Why do you people prey on white girls? It is sick!
I would like to second your motion on pounding their canker blossoms until my twaddle stick bleeds.
Why bring your vulgar spatter onto our site?
I call BS on this. No company would use your crap contant for a play.
You’re right….I think they want to use our “content” instead of our “contant”.
This is what tempts me to move back to New York. I miss the culture and even pc liberal thespians know where to find great writers and good material for their shows. Next time I’m out that way visiting family I hope to see one of their productions.
This… this seems worth seeing.
