Very early on, it was clear that we needed a director to reign in the chaos. Aaron Ginsburg is an absolute gift. He brings so much more than mere cat-wrangling to the show, and we can’t thank him enough. Here’s Aaron with his twin:

Here’s a photo of the original cast taken at (we believe) our 8th anniversary show (unfortunately Gruber was out of town):

We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention Joel Spence who created and worked the sound effects for us over many years. Joel is an insanely talented actor and improvisor, and he was so kind and generous with his time.

After doing the show for a few years at M Bar, we were lucky enough to attract enough amazing talent to bring on the second wave of WorkJuice Players. They are John DiMaggio, John Ennis, Samm Levine, James Urbaniak, and Autumn Reeser. A tremendous group in both talent and heart, WorkJuice: TNG were formidable presences both on- and backstage. We learned so much working with all of the WJ Players, and we cannot thank them enough. Here are a bunch of photos of the second-wavers from over the years.

We loved putting Annie Savage and John DiMaggio in scenes together. DiMagg would break Annie every time. Jonathan Reilly took this perfect photo of that in action:

DiMaggio was often onstage with Common Rotation post-show, and it was always special.

Autumn loves costumes. It’s possible she doesn’t know what a podcast is.

One of our favorite photos of Autumn. This couldn’t possibly have been during a show.
