The Lineup

There was a recent press release announcing the licensing of 30 minute version of ANNIE.  This inspired the Drama Police to offer tips on how to make your show shorter:

  • Direct Jean Valjean to pay for the bread
  • Your Twelve Angry Men agree on the first ballot
  • Change the Guys line to “The Biltmore Garage is in!”
  • Have the apothecary prescribe Hamlet some Prozac
  • Make Danny & Sandy gay (like in the movie)
  • Direct the Darling family to lock their windows at night
  • Cut all the curse words from your Mamet play
