A Drink With…Mike Ooi

Bartender, I’ll have a…Woodford Reserve on the rocks

I’m SURE you remember me from such Factory shows as…Mop Top Festival, 1985, Black & Blue, Ren Faire, Hitler Christmas

I got involved with the Factory because…It’s a green card situation, I think. Also, Sara Sevigny made me.

My current/next gig is…Getting Dating & Dragons ready for the stage while I write more plays, hold more readings, and look for love in the big city.

I give a shit about our move to Rogers Park because…I now live 2 train stops away, so a lot of train drinking.

If I had to force you to listen to 2 albums, they would be…The Blessed Unrest by Sara Bareilles, specifically “I Choose You” on repeat, while you are tied up in a basement, staring at a mannequin wearing a wedding dress.

What do you mean, I don’t understand the question? How else do you force someone to do anything?

I use whatever personal leverage I have over you to ensure that you listen to August and Everything After by Counting Crows, in a basement, while you stare at a mannequin wearing a wedding dress.

My favourite Factory memory is…Directing Street Justice: Condition Red. All those moments…like tears…in…rain.

I’m switching drinks, I’ll have a…Double Oaked Woodford Reserve on the rocks
