I’m psyched we’re playing Sleepwalk With Me. I started listening to comedian Mike Birbiglia on This American Life when I was having my own trouble with sleeping. My sleepwalking got only so exciting as turning on the teakettle in the middle of the night and the really fun experience of getting to stay up for a full 24 hours so that I could have little suction cups glued to my head at 6AM to determine what was going on up there in Shanaland (verdict: eliminate some stressors) but Birbiglia’s sleepwalking got more and more ridiculous — like jumping out a window ridiculous — as the tension in his life mounted. The film, directed by and starring Mike Birbiglia as well as Lauren Ambrose of Six Feet Under fame (plus Carol Kane who I haven’t seen in forever!) expands on the radio story and has been getting absolutely rave reviews.
Folks are super excited about this film and in order to up the ante we’ll be hiding these masks all over town.
Stay tuned to this blog and our Facebook page for updates on where to find the masks. Sport one with your PJs on the film’s opening night of September 14 and collect a free slice of pizza!
