BEAUTY LOVE TRUTH Improv Music Show to Play at Peoples Improv Theatre 4/05


Beauty Love Truth, a show in which guest musicians inspire improvised scenes, plays on Thursday, April 5, 2012 at 9:30pm. This show will play at the Peoples Improv Theater (123 East 24th St. between Park and Lex). Running Time: 60 mins.

Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased by calling 800-838-3006 or online at

There is an adjoining bar and café with light food, so early arrival and after-hang is encouraged.

After a decade of shows at UCB, Barrow Street Theatre, Magnet, The PIT, and countless bars and venues around New York City, Beauty Love Truth’s elegant format -- improvised scenes inspired by a live musician -- returned a year ago with monthly shows at the PIT. Guest musicians provide the material and inspiration and the rotating cast of the improvisers use themes, images, words, moods, or ideas from the music. Nothing is planned; relationships are sweetly or tragically transformed, worlds created or destroyed, souls enlightened or crushed, and magic truths underscored with laughter.

For this run, Beauty Love Truth is always introduced by a writer or comedian who presents something on the topic of beauty, love, and/or truth. Another feature in this run: guest actors who do not usually improvise will be invited to sit in with the rotating cast. Special guests will often be unpublicized so join the mailing list at Recent musical guests include: Georgia and Ira from Yo La Tengo, The Spring Standards, Mike Doughty, Chris Mills, LiAnne Smith, and many more.

This month’s show will feature very special guest musician Bob Dorough who will play and sing his jazz compositions and perhaps even a Schoolhouse Rock! masterpiece to inspire the scenes.
