b2ap3_thumbnail_25.jpgOh my God, we just quoted a Nelly Furtado song. It's so sad. Anyway not as sad as the end of the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe. It's even hard to find the right words to write about it, but after all, EdFringe 2014 is not so far so we didn't have time to complain and we need to describe this experience, waiting for the next one. 

Well, if you don't find words, try with number:

  • 18 shows (and some mixed improv jam-session). Some wonderful, some good, some bad too. It's improv. But every single show make us more skilled, stronger and better improvisers (pictures 2). 
  • 14 cast member (in pictures 3 you see part of the last-week cast). Let me say "amazing". Living all together for three weeks can be absolutely hard, but this time was wonderful. Every single actor was at his best as professionalism and diligence in this project. 
  • 2 sold out. In a festival with more than 2k show, 2 sold out for a show at his debut is really awesome. When we started we b2ap3_thumbnail_foto-11.JPGhoped on an audience percentage of 20% (As Fringe Society suggest for premier show), but we god 47%. Almost 50%. With 2 sold out. We should be proud of that. Yes, we are quite far away from Showstoppers or Mischief Theater but they are references in Edinburgh, we just newbies. So, we're very very happy.
  • 1 final standing ovation. Should we explain better?
  • A bunch of amazing reviews (one of them put us on the 6 must-see shows of the Fringe)
  • Some bad reviews (it's absolutely part of the game and they teach us to be better)
  • A lot of beautiful friends (how can't you love lovely improvisers like Mischief, Showstoppers, Blind Mirth..). We already miss you a lot
  • Over 30 shows enjoyed. We love theatre and being in Edinburgh during the Fringe is like being in Italy if you love Pasta (or Mafia, or Mandolino as our favourite restaurant "Gianni the stereotype" suggest). 
  • 1 lovely venue, with his great staff (picture 1)! Thank you very much guys, you definitely rule!
  • 1 little white mouse in our beautiful big house (and this count as rhyme)
  • 1 ton of spam eated.
  • 5542€ collected in our crowdfunding experience from 130+ wonderful crowdfunders.
  • 10000+ things that should be in this list.

What can we add? It definitely was an emotional rollercoaster, but it was just wonderful. We really hope we'll able to come back next year for our second silent run, but who knows. We need to think about this, cause "a lot of" it's also the way we can describe the pounds we used to found this experience.

Anyway, Edinburgh don't feel safe, 'cause we may be back sooner that you expect!

Thank you #edfringe, thank you crowdfunders, thank you all guys, you are all amazing!

To infinity... and beyond!
