A gig playing the role of mystery woman at the bar – part of a scavenger hunt team building exercise – has the narrator of “Agent Hotpants” questioning what it means to play games.
From our “Alter Egos” show, here is Katherine Barron performing “Agent Hotpants” written by Debra Disbrow.
Do we carry ourselves throughout the day as Dr. Banner or The Hulk? Hulk or Banner? Some days negotiating the shared space of the MTA can unleash our inner transit monster. Debra Disbrow performs “Not Afraid of the Dark” written by Katherine Barron.
These stories were performed live at Jimmy’s No. 43 on September 17th, 2013. Episode 32 narrated by Mike Dressel.
Here are the “switched-up” storytellers bios from that evening:
Katherine Barron up and quit her day job, what a gift! She journeyed north in 2002 from NC and will be here until the wind shifts. Days are filled with auditions, paid gigs, standardized patient work, writing, and tea with friends. Despite the overwhelming resemblance, The Incredible Hulk is not her brother. www.katherinebarronarts.com
