Improvised History is an entirely improvised show based on what we remember about US History. Tonight, there will be TWO historic acts for your enjoyment!
First, An Improvised People's History
The show begins with the audience selecting a page from Howard Zinn's famous A People's History of the United States, which inspires the ensemble to create an entirely improvised play based around the events from that page! Famous and not-so-famous figures will come to life as the cast builds the narrative and tries its best to remember what exactly happened back then. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll probably groan at some of our awful puns.
Up next, Improvised History: An American Musical!
History seems to be really popular on Broadway - 1776, Les Mis, Chicago, and that other really popular one about Vice President Aaron Burr. Based on the suggestion of a historical event, the actors will improvise an entire one-act musical replete with singing and dancing and drama and comedy. Previous hits include "Teddy Roosevelt's Boyfriend" and "It's Not About the Size of the Bomb".
