Back at it again! Another Let Me Be Frank Productions show means another opportunity to tweet some behind-the-scenes facts about the show. â€œRattle 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 â€“ Good evening! @kaseyrenee12 from LMBF here to live tweet another performance!
@FranklyGreenBay 7:51pm â€“ Mentally going through my song lyrics and linesâ€¦it's been 6 days since we did this show! It's crazy what slips from your memory in 6 days.
@FranklyGreenBay 7:54pm â€“ Contrary to what you might think, this is not a filter. This is just how the lights look backstage. [live tweet photo 1]
@FranklyGreenBay 7:56pm â€“ Refrigeratorsâ€¦also known as onstage prop storage for this show.
@FranklyGreenBay 8:01pm â€“ 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 â€“ â€œEvery character on this stage is NOT real. I made them up. If they were real Mirro workers, they'd be fired" â€“ gentle disclaimer by Frank.
@FranklyGreenBay 8:30pm â€“ â€œUnder Pressure"??? Yeah I totally suggested that song for this show. #nobigdeal #alwayshaveanopinion
@FranklyGreenBay 8:30pm â€“ I go off stage and â€œAlone" is the next song. Fav song. I love just sitting back and watching it. Amy nails it.
@FranklyGreenBay 8:32pm â€“ 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 â€“ 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 â€“ â€œWe 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 â€“ â€œAlways" is one of those songs I only know because of the â€œMonster 80s Love Ballads cd collection" infomercials I saw as a kid.
@FranklyGreenBay 8:43pm â€“ Question I get asked the most in this show? â€œHow do you dance in those shoes?" My toes are basically numb by the end. It's fine. [live tweet photo 3]
@FranklyGreenBay 8:44pm â€“ â€œAnd everybody's got a stripper!" â€“ Frank describing the Mirro workers. HEY THAT'S ME. #mydadissoproud
@FranklyGreenBay 8:48pm â€“ â€œBelieve it or not" aka the George Costanza answering machine song. #seinfeld
@FranklyGreenBay 9:07pm â€“No set change and no costume change = easiest intermission ever.
@FranklyGreenBay 9:08pm â€“ â€œAre you live tweeting tonight? Will you say something sexy about the band??" hahahaha. The band IS the best (and sexiest) in the land.
@FranklyGreenBay 9:37pm â€“ 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 â€“ Getting to sing Stevie Nicks AND Joan Jett in this show?! Awesome.
@FranklyGreenBay 10:31pm â€“ 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?!
