Tongue-twisters

At New Line Theatre, where this week we will close the fourth weekend of performances of Bonnie & Clyde, I’ve been trying to devise a new tongue-twister most nights for our ritual warm-up.

Two of them from this past weekend were topical.

October tongue twisters

Some of these have been fairly creative.  Others have been repeats of something from my previous lives, including the ‘zinga-zinga-zoo’ exercise and the BDFLMTPTV series.

For the tongue-twisters here, simply take them up by half-steps, and get slightly faster each time.  Do one or the other, of course.  And in the Fall Break exercise, think in terms of a secondary dominant on ‘fabulous.’
