Consider this performance a love letter to the ball of amazingness that is Murphy Blue. Because really, that’s what it is.
You may figure this out watching it, but there just. is. no. one. else. like. him.
Okay, so a little bit of backstory. I started planning a musical for RambleGRUE ’15. I worked on it for MONTHS. It was totally the fulfillment of a childhood dream for me. I had wanted to have a “backyard” musical since I was 7 years old. 4 hours before the show, I completely and utterly lost my voice. I had to just play my songs and perform without singing. Graydancer took pity on me and invited me to repeat my performance with Murphy at RopeCraft Austin ’16… small catch that there would now be an audience more than 3 times as large in a barely mic’d ballroom.
But it happened anyway. And it was one of the greatest moments of my life.
Huge thanks to the people that made Ropecraft happen. And huge thanks to @TwistedView for videoing this.
