Act Two presents the award-winning National Theatre of the World -- Matt Baram, Naomi Snieckus and Rod Pederson.
This troupe will improvise a full-length play before your very eyes paying homage to Neil Simon, David Mamet or Woody Allen as they use that playwright's style and the audiences' suggestions to weave theatrical merriment! The National Theatre of the World is a multi-disciplinary, Toronto-based theatre company that creates exciting, provocative, and instantaneous theatre through the art of improvisation.
Hosts Linda Kash (Gorgeous in HGJTC's The Sisters Rosensweig) and beloved film, stage and television veteran Sheila McCarthy("Little Mosque on the Prairie") are currently in rehearsal for the upcoming Harold Green Jewish Theatre Company's production of Neil Simon's Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play LOST IN YONKERS starring Marion Ross (TV's "Happy Days").
