Live-tweeting 'Frank and Pat's Pizza'

kasey corrado | social cues | sept. 2016

After my wonderful vacation, I returned to the Meyer stage for the LMBF show, “Frank and Pat's Pizza" this summer! What a fun show! Pizza, '50s and '60s music and the comedy of Frank and Pat? What could be better? On Friday, August 12th I had the opportunity to once again live-tweet our show.

@FranklyGreenBay 7:12 p.m. – Hello! @KaseyRenee12 here ready to share our show with you! #frankandpatspizza

@FranklyGreenBay 7:13 p.m. – Had to leave 45 minutes earlier than I usually do…#packersgame #gbtraffic #onlyongameday #evenpreseason

Live tweet 1@FranklyGreenBay 7:16 p.m. – Pre show selfie. No makeup. No wig. Tired eyes. [live tweet 1]

@FranklyGreenBay 7:18 p.m. – Waiting for the day when we do a show with New Kids on the Block songs. I'm a BIG fan (look at my shirt). #hangintough #seriously

Live tweet 2@FranklyGreenBay 7:43 p.m. – My “little boyfriend" Harrison as he calls himself ;-) Amy and Frank's son is gonna be a heartbreaker someday. [live tweet 2]

@FranklyGreenBay 8:00 p.m. – So the wig q&a – 1. Found the wig on Amazon for $13. #score 2. I was looking for a brunette 1950s wig and that somehow popped up.

@FranklyGreenBay 8:00 p.m. – 3. It is the LIGHTEST wig ever. And usually I'm kinda high maintenance about my wig comfort.

@FranklyGreenBay 8:00 p.m. – 4. I showed a pic to Frank before I bought it and he was like, “yes go for it!"

@FranklyGreenBay 8:03 p.m. – 5. Everyone wants to touch it after the show. This must be what a pregnant woman with a belly feels like. #iwouldntknow

Live tweet 3@FranklyGreenBay 8:03 p.m. – Walking upstairs to start the show. [live tweet 3]

@FranklyGreenBay 8:08 p.m. – For the record…the Italian accents did not happen overnight. It was quite the process. Sometimes they sounded Jamaican, southern, etc.

Live tweet 4@FranklyGreenBay 8:10 p.m. – Legit Cranky Pat's pizza cooking in a dressing room during the first act. #thankyou [live tweet 4]

@FranklyGreenBay 8:12 p.m. – The girls aren't on stage for the first 20 minutes of the show. In between songs Emily and I mostly talk about our days at work. #wild

@FranklyGreenBay 8:12 p.m. – “What's fruit toast?! I want wheat toast!" – Frank. That's fructose there bud. Gotta love a well placed food pun.

@FranklyGreenBay 8:16 p.m. – Fun fact: The curtain does not open automatically. You can credit that to the lady guns of yours truly.

@FranklyGreenBay 8:17 p.m. – I warmed up for tonight's show by practicing some songs for an upcoming wedding of a Frank's fan. #congrats #weddingsingerontheside

@FranklyGreenBay 9:01 p.m. – Fun fact: I was TERRIFIED of the monster mash song as a kid. When I saw the song list for this show I started panicking.

@FranklyGreenBay 9:02 p.m. – #frankandpatspizza = favorite costumes I've ever gotten to pick out. I will definitely wear these after the show is done.

Live tweet 5@FranklyGreenBay 9:04 p.m. – Allll byyyyy myyssseeellllffff. [live tweet 5]

@FranklyGreenBay 10:04 p.m. – When you hear “tiny dancer" playing in the theater but think it's “seasons of love" for a second…music fail. #musicalkid

@FranklyGreenBay 10:05 p.m. – Show is done! It's hard to tweet when I'm on stage the entire second act!

@FranklyGreenBay 10:05 p.m. – So I play a special kind of character in this show…the drunk. My parents have never been prouder.

@FranklyGreenBay 10:06 p.m. – It's exhausting being that obnoxious. #drunkgirl

@FranklyGreenBay 10:07 p.m. – “You reminded me of a drunk college sorority girl walking in heels like Bambi" – audience member. Then I guess I did my job! #nailedit

@FranklyGreenBay 10:12 p.m. – That's a wrap! Thanks for tuning in! Until next time.

@FranklyGreenBay 10:13 p.m. – Ps – one of my lifelong bucket list items gets to be checked off in the next show. GET EXCITED.
