Nick Offerman to Star in "Confederacy of Dunces"
« on: Mar 02, 2015, 12:54 pm »
Link.

I know some folks have mixed feelings about TV/Movie stars stepping onto the stage, however I'm all for anything that brings positive attention and new audience members to the theatre.

As an aside - if you haven't read Confederacy of Dunces, I can't recommend it enough.  Absolutely hilarious.

I'd just like to point out that while he's obviously most famous for Parks and Rec, he came to Hollywood from the Chicago theatre scene having worked at both Steppenwolf and the Goodman, to name a few.

For sure, but most of the ticket-buying public will not be aware of that... and that's OK.

I might have to take a Bolt Bus trip to see this. I have a feeling he'll be fantastic.

Maybe he'll build the sets, and then destory them because they are too "perfect"

Or

He'll go to the Panera across the street and say "Give me all the bacon and eggs you have. Wait, wait. I worry what you just heard was give me a lot of bacon and eggs. What I said was: Give me all the bacon and eggs you have."

Or the hundreds of other brilliant things he has said..

I  can kind of see him going, "There's a screw loose in the floor here- oh don't bother, I got it" and whipping a leatherman out of his pocket.

As I was not a 'Parks and Rec' watcher, I guess I have a lot of TV to catch up on before the first rehearsal... ; )
