What exactly is Team StarKid?
The door at the back of a Wilmette movie house cracked open. A young girl poked her head in. She spotted a half dozen or so twentysomethings standing amid the seats of an otherwise empty theater and her eyes grew wide. “Wow! Hey! Team StarKid!” she shouted, and the young theater troupe/Internet sensation/fledgling multi-platform entertainment juggernaut known as Team StarKid collectively turned. Embarrassed, the girl pulled her head out and the door banged shut. Team StarKid waved then turned back to talking about their friends and auditions and day jobs, their recent move to Chicago, whether their cars were being towed out front and how their latest soundtrack was doing on iTunes.
