Introducing 'MARTA, The Musical'

Posted By on Fri, Aug 6, 2010 at 11:34 AM

Wanna be part of an elaborate performance in September? You should learn about the "MARTA Musical," my friend.

From Improv Everywhere:

NEEDED:
Good & LOUD Singers, (& Saxophonists, Keyboardists, Flutists, Violinists, Trumpeters if you can practice in tune with rehearsals & the stereo) Percussionists, 2 Videographers, Photographers, etc.

The first performer stands up on the Marta & leads us all in
*"LEAVIN' ON a MIDNIGHT TRAIN to GEORGIA"
while the other "Strangers" join in with vocals (& instruments if possible)
After the next stop we sing & dance to:
*"CHATTANOOGA CHOO CHOO" with Choreography.
After the next stop it gets BIGGER, more choreography EVERYONE joins in on *"LOCOMOTION"
"Everybody's doin' a brand new dance now
(C'mon baby do the loco-motion)
I know you'll get to like it
If you give it a chance now
(C'mon baby do the loco-motion)..."
*** Everybody Dances, in Train Formation, etc, etc, etc on the Marta!

* During the Stops, NO ONE SINGS. Everyone just goes back to being STRANGERS.

Also, WE WILL DO THE ENTIRE THING AGAIN ON THE WAY BACK.

AWESOME. Considering the performance is scheduled to go down around the same time MARTA's service cuts take effect, this might put a smile on some strap hangers' faces.
