A MUCH BETTER CHOICE THAN BIG BAD VOODOO DADDY AT WALT DISNEY HALL!

What do you get when you take a team of writers, directors and actors, throw a few random key words and concepts at them, and tell them to come back in 24 hours with eight new plays? Sacred Fools' Fast & Loose, of course. The company's 11th annual New Year's Eve show technically starts the evening prior, when writers get the variables from which they must craft a script; the next morning, directors are given the scripts, and those crazy kids put on a show just in time for "Auld Lang Syne." Not to be outdone, songwriters are also stepping up to the challenge, adhering to the same rules of blind chance in an effort to become overnight hit makers. This year's theme is time travel, and audience members are encouraged to wear period garb. (And yes, according to Sacred Fools, "the Future is a valid time period.")
