LOBSTER MEMORY LANE #3 with Actor/Writer/Director ERIN CARTER:
-What was your first show?
KML Saves the Day
-What was your last show?
Still with the group!
-What You Do/Did For the Group?
I perform, write, teach, and have directed.
-Favorite Line in a Sketch:
“Nice tights.” From KML Saves the Day.
-Favorite Memory/Moment from your time with KML:
It would probably have to be from KML Goes to 11, our 11th anniversary show. I was entrusted to direct the sketch “High Heels,” originally from KML Walks this Way, and I was terrified because the entire sketch consists of one line sung over and over again: High heels, high heels, repeat. Once we got the choreography and costumes, the sketch started to come together, and when we performed it, at the end of the sketch, the entire audience stood up and started singing along to the refrain. Just imagine a packed house of people singing in unison: “HIGH HEEEELS, High He-ee-eels.” It was as oddly touching moment that really defined for me what KML is: a bunch of weirdos singing and dancing in crazy costumes. It’s special.
-How has KML turned your life around?
I’m no longer addicted to crack cocaine or tanning beds.
