Live-Tweeting LMBF’s ‘Rattle Those Pots & Pans, Mirro Style’

Back at it again! Another Let Me Be Frank Productions show means another opportunity to tweet some behind-the-scenes facts about the show. “Rattle Those Pots & Pans, Mirro Style" took us back to the late 1970s and early 1980s (my favorite!) in September and October. I loved doing this show and I hope those who got to see it enjoyed it too.

@FranklyGreenBay 7:25pm – Good evening! @kaseyrenee12 from LMBF here to live tweet another performance!

@FranklyGreenBay 7:51pm – Mentally going through my song lyrics and lines…it's been 6 days since we did this show! It's crazy what slips from your memory in 6 days.

@FranklyGreenBay 7:56pm – Refrigerators…also known as onstage prop storage for this show.

@FranklyGreenBay 8:01pm – Frank just stepped out for his pre-show chat. I always try to figure out how many people are in the audience based on how loud they laugh ;-)

@FranklyGreenBay 8:02pm – “Every character on this stage is NOT real. I made them up. If they were real Mirro workers, they'd be fired" – gentle disclaimer by Frank.

@FranklyGreenBay 8:30pm – “Under Pressure"??? Yeah I totally suggested that song for this show. #nobigdeal #alwayshaveanopinion

@FranklyGreenBay 8:30pm – I go off stage and “Alone" is the next song. Fav song. I love just sitting back and watching it. Amy nails it.

@FranklyGreenBay 8:32pm – You know it's gonna be a long night when you literally feel the sweat dripping down your back when you sing. #itsgettinghotinhere

@FranklyGreenBay 8:35pm – Fun fact: the bag of aluminum Amy carries around in this show was also Santa's (aka Tom's) bag of toys in our 2013 and 2014 Christmas show

@FranklyGreenBay 8:38pm – “We Just Disagree" is the song that gets stuck in my head EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. I hum it all day long at work. Cuz that's not annoying at all.

@FranklyGreenBay 8:40pm – “Always" is one of those songs I only know because of the “Monster 80s Love Ballads cd collection" infomercials I saw as a kid.

Live Tweet Photo 3@FranklyGreenBay 8:43pm – Question I get asked the most in this show? “How do you dance in those shoes?" My toes are basically numb by the end. It's fine. [live tweet photo 3]

@FranklyGreenBay 8:44pm – “And everybody's got a stripper!" – Frank describing the Mirro workers. HEY THAT'S ME. #mydadissoproud

@FranklyGreenBay 8:48pm – “Believe it or not" aka the George Costanza answering machine song. #seinfeld

@FranklyGreenBay 9:07pm –No set change and no costume change = easiest intermission ever.

@FranklyGreenBay 9:08pm – “Are you live tweeting tonight? Will you say something sexy about the band??" hahahaha. The band IS the best (and sexiest) in the land.

Live Tweet Photo 4@FranklyGreenBay 9:37pm – If you look closely you can see Tom's Bob Marley-esque hat. Is there a special name for those??? [live tweet photo 4]

@FranklyGreenBay 9:38pm – Getting to sing Stevie Nicks AND Joan Jett in this show?! Awesome.

@FranklyGreenBay 10:31pm – A fun way to start the weekend! Great show with a great audience! Two more weekends of this show and then next is CHRISTMAS. What?!
