BWW Review: Impro's TENNESSEE WILLIAMS UNSCRIPTED Scores at the Falcon
by Don Grigware - Jun 21, 2016

Everything that happens is spontaneous and will never be repeated in another performance. It makes me question what the job of the director, in this case member Brian Lohmann, actually is? (more...)

by Andrew White - Jun 13, 2016

At stake for both couples in Going to a Place is the fundamental question: are we good people? And even if we tell ourselves over and over again that we're jerks, that we have no soul and not one scintilla of empathy for anyone but ourselves, could it be that we're still decent people after all? Sometimes the shock lies not so much in our cynicism but in the realization that the pose is a lie, and that goodness and soul were always there, in our hearts, from the git-go. (more...)
