The First Five Minutes are Slow


The First Five Minutes are Slow is a quirky show for older children and adults. Kathryn Jorgenson is Mary, a bedraggled office slave. Everything after that is open for interpretation. Mary’s daydream takes her on an adventure where she comes into contact with a strange bird, dead fish, battling squid, guys singing the strangest version of Danny Boy, and an annoying guy who spoils the ending to movies. She rides a train, toils through the desert, and enters the coolest cave ever. The cast of 3-Jorgenson, Brant Miller, and Mark Rehani rely on pure imagination and a few props from Office Max to invent a wacky world. I would recommend it for ages 10+.
