Random Questions with Larry Fields is FTF’s newest virtual program. Just as the title suggests the show is a fun, off-the-wall take on a talk show based around a series of rapid-fire random questions. Some of the questions are ridiculously off-the-wall (if you were a disease which one would you be?), some are like a Rorschach test (how old do you want to become?) others are designed for long-form answers (Tell us about a time you made a fool of yourself)—but they are all designed to bring out the fun side of our guests and to highlight their unique personalities through humor. The interview is in many ways like an improv game—it works best when the participants go with it (the “yes, and” approach), no matter how silly or vague the questions may be. For instance, if a question is vague, it works best for the guest to interpret it how they choose to interpret it, likewise, if a binary choice question is asked and both answers are terrible, it’s more fun for the guest to pick one choice than to say “none of them.” In that same spirit, all answers can be expounded upon at the guest’s whim—any question that prompts an anecdote is welcome—The show is fun and light. The questions are truly randomly selected before each show from a list of more than 220 random questions, ensuring that each night’s show is truly unique. The show is 30 minutes long and is broadcast live on Facebook and YouTube via remote interview (Zoom). Guests are all FTF alumni—both past and present, featuring performers, directors, designers, etc.—all the kinds of people who make FTF possible. This show is our way of celebrating our great and talented artists both on stage and off—and it’s a gig in the pandemic!
