So what's the deal with this whole Tour Noir?
Generally, a sightseeing tour will take you around a fair city, show you the sights, and sprinkle in some worthwhile facts and decent jokes. Tour Noir is different. With Tour Noir: A Dame to Guide For, our lovely audiences get to experience what we've dubbed sightseeing theater. Here the history and culture of lower Manhattan is mixed with an original, and frankly hilarious film noir play to provide something off the beaten tourist trap. Instead of simply hearing a bunch of dry facts, enjoy watching and participating in the tale of two ex-lovers bickering and bantering their way through winding streets and towering structures while learning what New York City is all about.
Some info or dirt on the cast of characters strolling about town with you!
Jason Thompson (Tour Guide/Creator) - Figured that getting a NYC sightseeing license combined with taking people around New York City while getting slapped by a femme fatale was better than getting a real job. The verdict's still out on whether he was right.
Also check out his ramblings at his semi-popular blog: http://jason4king.blogspot.com/.
Robyn Belt (weekend Veronica) - A New York City resident for three years, Robyn still verifies subway directions several times before going cross-borough. A member of Marvel Comics' Sales team, she writes (www.marvel.com/comics/discover), edits copy and boosts morale by being a "Whoo, Happy Friday" person.
