After seeing the show, I had the immediate desire to go grab a drink with Forrest Attaway. Great acting, fun format, and good message: Everyone should know their story, and own it.
Very unusual production at the Living Room features Seth Macchi portraying Forrest Attaway and telling a serious of stories in his life, supposedly half true and half made up. It’s part improve as audience members pick cards and Seth randomly chooses people. Their cards predicate which stories he will tell. His performance was quite amusing, but I felt like I wasn’t privy to all of the punchlines as many bits were inside jokes about Forrest, which would be more amusing the better you know him.
Not knowing anything about Forrest Attaway, I felt like I was missing out on a lot of the jokes in this. While the stories we heard (each show is different) were entertaining, they didn’t really pull me in. I did enjoy the acting.
Wasn’t familiar with Forrest Attaway before this show, but it was engaging and entertaining. Seth Macchi was natural in the role and did a great job of convincing us that HE was Forrest Attaway and that the stories were personal experiences from his own life (of course told with plenty of creative license).
A randomized format means that each show will be different. Not a one man show, the supporting character definitely added to the experience.
