See Attachment at Gorilla Tango Theatre (March 18th, 2015)

See Attachment is billed as a sketch comedy show about finding yourself outside of the screen.  Thus, it is unexpected when there are some very dramatic moments between divorced parents or a single father and his daughter.  They stick out and just leave the audience feeling awkward.  The same issue occurs at “Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind.”

Many of the scenes did build well, such as when parents think their son is gay and they are trying to get him to come out.  However, there isn’t really a big payoff at the end.  Perhaps the son should have said, “Mom, Dad, I have something to tell you.  I’m… a Democrat!”  Also, there is a scene where they have an intervention for a guy who keeps dating overweight girls.  It seemed like it might be leading to a moral lesson, but then it disappointingly ends with them calling him gay.

The audience really enjoyed the sketch of a woman doing a strip tease removing all her winter gear.  The Gorilla Tango Theatre is mostly known for its burlesque shows, so it was a bit of an homage to the venue.  This scene was split up into multiple parts throughout the show, and always resulted in applause.

Overall, there were some funny lines and chuckles to be had, but there is a lot of room for improvement for this short one-hour show.
