Rena added, “Timing is so vitally important to the show for two reasons. One, it makes the show seem more natural rather than a performance. Two, because if your timing on a line is off, it could be a cue for another actor, therefore throwing off the balance of the performance.”
As the interview wrapped up and we took some photos on the stage, a feeling of history swept over us as we gazed over the empty seats. After 39 years the show has maintained its relevance and its topical humor, even in light of the fact that it has evolved over decades and began during the Vietnam War. And yet, after all that time, it’s still one of the best ways in San Francisco to spend a Saturday night. We can’t wait to see it again.
