I had already gone through the first three chapters (on separate nights) of The Kansas Collection but was very interested in seeing Chapters One and Two back-to-back.

Logistically this was buttery smooth but I guess it makes sense since The Speakeasy Society had remounted both of these shows separately a few times already. The space they used for this double feature was the same they used for Chapter Two.

My first time through Chapter One was in the backyard of a house in Los Angeles. I doubt the change to an indoor space detracted much from a first timer’s experience but being outdoors matched the big top tent decor much better. There was an extra scene between Chapters One and Two that served as a transition between the two stories that occurred via e-mail my first time around. After this interaction you are told to wait in the lobby for your number to be called. It would have been nicer to roll directly into Chapter Two but they make the wait fit with the story.

I commend The Speakeasy Society for going out of their way to make sure I got to experience something new in both Chapter One and Two. The girl checking me in asked, in detail, who I met with when I went through my first time and coded it up somehow on the numbered sticker everyone places on their shirt. She drew designs using a pen and colored the borders with a highlighter. This type of attention to a repeat visitor has made me a fan for life!
