Split Bill: Messy perfectionism / A Musical Anatomy

Mohit Patel/Sarah Owens


Categories: Theater, Music, Storytelling

Dates: September 6, 2023 - September 24, 2023

Run Time: 60 mins

Venue: Fidget Space


A Musical Anatomy is a one man musical, or as close as I can get by myself. A few years ago I wrote this play for a festival that I then adapted into a musical. I was never happy with it, though, so I’m going to put it on again and dissect it a bit. I’m going to talk about musicals. I’m going to talk about storytelling. And all the while I’ll be playing every part of a show that definitely should have more than one actor.

Messy Perfectionism:

Ingredients – movement, visuals, poetry, truth, lies, emotions, and facades.

Option to replace facades with smoke and mirrors. Can omit the truth entirely.

Steps –

1. Blend

2. Consume. Best if shared.

Cannonball, produced by Almanac Dance Circus Theatre, is the first and largest independent festival hub of the Philadelphia Fringe that presents risk-taking independent artists in back-to-back performances next to delicious lounge spaces, fostering creative collisions and community conversation.
