Collaborations And Improvisations Coming Up At Verge!

Those of us in Southwest Montana are fortunate to have so many opportunities to experience theatre. Bozeman alone has several theaters and acting companies, and we at Verge always find it a pleasure to co-produce plays with the multi-verse of talent in this community.

To that point, February finds Verge Theater and Bozeman Actors Theatre collaborating to produce Doug Wright's intriguing play, I Am My Own Wife. Based on a true story, and inspired by interviews conducted by the playwright over several years, I Am My Own Wife tells the fascinating tale of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, an elegant and eccentric transgender 65-year-old German who, against all odds, hid from the Nazis in plain sight as a woman, and who managed to survive both the Nazi onslaught and the repressive East German Communist regime.

Winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and 2004 Tony Award for Best Play, I Am My Own Wife is a one-man play starring Ryan Lawrence Flynn in over 30 roles, and directed by Kari Doll. Shows run Fridays and Saturdays at 8PM from February 2 - 17. Tickets for I Am My Own Wife are $14 in advance (vergetheater.com or in person at Cactus Records) or $16 at the door. Recommended for ages17+

The Bozeman Improverts are back with Improv On The Verge Monday nights. The Improverts give the biggest laughs for the fewest bucks! Guaranteed to be a hilarious start to your week. Popular Improv games are played, in the style of the TV show "Whose Line is it Anyway?", as well as long-form Improv. Everything is created on the spot and based on audience suggestions. Upcoming shows are February 5 & 19 at 7PM. Tickets for Improv are $7 in advance (vergetheater.com or in person at Cactus Records) or $9 at the door. Check the Verge website for more Monday Night Improv throughout the regular Season! Recommended for ages17+

In February we will also be running our hilarious, surprising, captivating and popular Silly Moose Improv Show For Kids! Adults shouldn't have all the fun (but they are welcome, too), so on Saturdays in February we'll be opening up the Family Stage for this fun and interactive improvisation show for kids and parents alike. The kids are encouraged to get crazy, shout suggestions and become a part of the hilarity on stage. Adults can just sit back, enjoy, and watch the mayhem ensue. Just like our Improv on the Verge shows, but with a G rating!! The Silly Moose Improv Show runs on Saturdays at 3PM from February 3 - 24. Tickets are $7 in advance (vergetheater.com or in person at Cactus Records) or $9 at the door. Children 2 and under are FREE!

Visit vergetheater.com for reservations and more info about our entire 2017-2018 Season. We hope to see you at The Little Black Box On The Edge (of Bozeman)!
