d New York Neo-Futurists

From PBS Nation (MC Rib, feat. Roey Jizzolo) (2012), by Kate Jones & Joey Rizzolo.

You know who we love? Warren Buffett. Listen as Joey and Eevin sing (with the mighty power of 12 Neo-Futurists backing them up) “The Sage of Omaha” during our final Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind for 2011. Rock out, friends. Thank you for an amazing year.

Four Neos (a conductor and three in the orchestra) are onstage with music stands. Other Neos may be assigned parts of the play for emphasis. The orchestra keeps time with a steady rhythm throughout, unless noted.

Bucket Hugger! (x7)

[whispering] There are uses

CONDUCTOR & ORCHESTRA 
There are uses for a bucket known from here to Baton Rouge. 
A water-filled receptacle can be a handy centrifuge. 
Put it in a car and it becomes a bucket seat or 
An accessory of gluttony for greedy trick-or-treaters. 
It’s a smoking apparatus for the marijuana junkies. 
If a barrel isn’t handy, you could fill it up with monkeys, 
Or the colonel’s special recipe of breaded chicken pieces, 
Or spackle, pickles, driveway sealant, paint, or human feces.

MTA Rep Presents: Romeo and Juliet The Balcony Scene

© 2006 F. Omar Telan & Joey Rizzolo

MALE NEO. But soft! What light through yonder window breaks?
It is the East, and Juliet is the sun!

FEMALE NEO. O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?
What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other word would smell as sweet.

MALE NEO. Call me but love, and I’ll be new baptized;
Henceforth I never will be Romeo.

FEMALE NEO. Art thou not Romeo, and a Montague?

VO NEO. Please stand clear of the closing doors.

SPOILER ALERT!!! by Joey Rizzolo (2007). Originally performed the week that the final Harry Potter book was released, Joey did offer the audience a pair noise cancelling headphones. Those that chose to listen… well… revolted.

Joey Rizzolo’s “Brownie Mountain” (2008)

When originally performed, Neo-Futurists would shove Joey’s mouth full of delicious brownies just before final the set of verses. Hilarity ensued.
