Impro Theatre's:

Twilight Zone Unscripted

January 18th, 2016 @ 7:30pm

From the darkest corners of reality, to the land of the unexplained – Impro Theatre’s Twilight Zone Unscripted pays homage to Rod Serling’s breakthrough sci-fi series “The Twilight Zone.” Enter the wondrous dimension of imagination, as completely improvised episodes are created with every performance. 90 minutes with a 10 minute interval. Usually a 45 minute first half and a 35 minute second half.





Jane Austen Unscripted

March 14th, 2016 @ 7:30pm

Jane Austen only wrote six novels in her lifetime, but they are some of the most beloved tales of love and misunderstanding, wit and wisdom, and passion and betrayal ever written. Now, for the first time in two centuries, Impro Theatre will deliver a new Jane Austen story every night. Passionate, willful women flirt and verbally joust with handsome, brooding young noblemen. Hearts are broken, secrets are revealed and true love wins out in the end. Or does it? The essence of Austen’s brilliant and timeless romantic comedies and social satires is brought faithfully to life by this expert team of funny and gifted actors, whose recent explorations of great literary figures include Shakespeare, Dickens, Sondheim, and Tennessee Williams. Directed by Dan O'Connor and Paul Rogan. 90 minutes with a 10 minute interval. Usually a 45 minute first half and a 35 minute second half.



Chekhov Unscripted

June 13th, 2016 @ 7:30pm

A prolific writer of short stories and other forms, Anton Chekhov wrote only a handful of full-length plays, but they revolutionized theatre. With his meticulous observation of character, his anti-melodramatic action, and his wistful evocation of isolated characters trapped in their provincial self-delusion, he left a legacy of funny, haunting and unique creations that still delight audiences today. Impro Theatre creates a new Chekhovian world populated by people who dream of a different life, all the while dealing with the everyday unpredictability of feeling love, disillusionment and the certain catastrophe that is the next moment.

Book of Moron

February 9th & May 3rd, 2016

Robert Dubac’s new solo show THE BOOK OF MORON! Combining theater with stand-up Dubac buckles us up for a fast-paced joy ride over the pot-holed highways of cultural hypocrisy. Riding shotgun with intelligence and absurdity he crashes head first into the barriers of sex, race, religion, politics and the media. And he’s not alone. With mesmerizing ease, he portrays multiple characters who all take turns beating the hornet’s nest of hype and spin with the big stick of knowledge. It’s comedy on steroids.

His Royal Hipness

Lord Buckley

March 7th & 8th @7:30pm, 2016

The show, performed by JAKE BRODER is based on the hip routines of LORD BUCKLEY, a hip comedian from the 40’s who rose to prominence in the 50’s and influenced counter culture in this country very strongly. The artists who cite Buckley as a major influence is a who’s who of comedy, music, actors and writers from Jack Kerouac & Bob Dylan to Robin Williams and Johnny Depp. He was a hip ‘aristocrat’ ennobling the audience rather than himself and translating the great stories and histories of the world in to a be bop infused language he called ‘the hipsemantic’.

Clarence Darrow Tonight!

March 21st & March 22nd @7:30pm, 2016

One of the most fascinating men in American history, attorney Clarence Darrow was simply the greatest humanist ever to exist. He was considered by his enemies as the Great Satan, an agitator and Defender of the Damned. His trials included the defense of John Scopes, who dared to teach evolution, the thrill killers Leopold and Loeb, child laborers and coal miners. Broadway’s LAURENCE LUCKINBILL brings this multi-faceted character to life in a truly riveting performance.

In 1950’s Hollywood, at the height of the Communist Blacklist, when careers were ruined by a whisper, we meet irascible comedy screenwriter Bernie Lutz. Funny and lovable, Bernie has made his way up the ladder by being a spineless Hollywood sellout. Now, the night before a big red carpet premiere that will make Bernie’s career, he has been asked to name names and give up his friend. He has one day to decide if he will accede to government demands and save his skin, or protect his friend and save his soul in the most serious decision of his life.
