Sarah Esocoff ’15 and Keelin Ryan ’14 wrote and produced their comedy “Laugh Track” at Wesleyan the spring of 2014. They are now pulling a Lin-Manuel Miranda and bringing the show to NYC! The show stars Beanie Feldstein ’15 and has many Wesleyan crew members (but not too many).
The comedy is playing a 5 show run at The New York International Fringe Festival. Tickets to the first performance include free admittance to the after party!

The very funny Sarah Esocoff ’15 writes:
Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes of your favorite TV show?
LAUGH TRACK follows the taping of one episode of “He’s a Dad!,” a beloved multi-camera sitcom in its 9th season. Watch as five television stars, a show runner, and a cue card guy fall in and out of character, lust, love, and alcohol-induced debauchery.
Written & Directed by Keelin Ryan ’14 & the aforementioned Sarah Esocoff.
Performances on Friday, May 9 at 8 p.m. and on Saturday, May 10 at 2 p.m. & 8 p.m.
Location: ’92 Theater

The show features a princess in exile, Mexican stand-offs, corruption in Res-Life, high stakes gambling, dreams dying/coming true (but mostly dying), hubris, training wheels, hammers smashing things, babies having “babies”, and quests.
Be prepared to do a cold read of a scene. Feel free to bring/perform your own monologue or excerpt (although this is not required). See you there! If you have any questions, feel free to contact Pat O’Brien, Dan Obzejta, Aaron Peisner, or Garth Taylor.
