His Royal Hipness

Lord Buckley

March 7th & 8th, 2016 @ 7:30pm


The show, performed by JAKE BRODER is based on the hip routines of LORD BUCKLEY, a hip comedian from the 40’s who rose to prominence in the 50’s and influenced counter culture in this country very strongly. The artists who cite Buckley as a major influence is a who’s who of comedy, music, actors and writers from Jack Kerouac & Bob Dylan to Robin Williams and Johnny Depp. He was a hip ‘aristocrat’ ennobling the audience rather than himself and translating the great stories and histories of the world in to a be bop infused language he called ‘the hipsemantic’.

JANE AUSTEN UNSCRIPTED

March 14th, 2016 @ 7:30pm


Jane Austen only wrote six novels in her lifetime, but they are some of the most beloved tales of love and misunderstanding, wit and wisdom, and passion and betrayal ever written. Now, for the first time in two centuries, Impro Theatre will deliver a new Jane Austen story every night. Passionate, willful women flirt and verbally joust with handsome, brooding young noblemen. Hearts are broken, secrets are revealed and true love wins out in the end. Or does it? The essence of Austen’s brilliant and timeless romantic comedies and social satires is brought faithfully to life by this expert team of funny and gifted actors, whose recent explorations of great literary figures include Shakespeare, Dickens, Sondheim, and Tennessee Williams. Directed by Dan O'Connor and Paul Rogan. 90 minutes with a 10 minute interval. Usually a 45 minute first half and a 35 minute second half.



Clarence Darrow Tonight!

March 21st & March 22nd, 2016 @ 7:30pm

One of the most fascinating men in American history, attorney Clarence Darrow was simply the greatest humanist ever to exist. He was considered by his enemies as the Great Satan, an agitator and Defender of the Damned. His trials included the defense of John Scopes, who dared to teach evolution, the thrill killers Leopold and Loeb, child laborers and coal miners. Broadway’s LAURENCE LUCKINBILL brings this multi-faceted character to life in a truly riveting performance.

Book of Moron

May 3rd, 2016 @ 7:30pm

Robert Dubac’s newest Off-Broadway solo hit, THE BOOK OF MORON, has been described as one of the most “Hilarious” “Intelligent” and “Scorching” satirical attacks on idiocracy since Mark Twain. (And “idiocracy” isn’t even a word. How dumb is that?)

The New York Times raves, “Riding shotgun with intelligence and absurdity, there’s laughter for all!”

If you are yearning for some satire that cuts with a clever intelligent edge; if you are tired of adolescent comedies generated by the mediocrity of television; then buckle them up for a hilarious joy ride over the pot-holed highways of cultural hypocrisy.

It’s comedy on steroids. Think your funny bone can handle it?



IMPRO THEATRE PRESENTS

Chekhov Unscripted

June 13th, 2016 @ 7:30pm


Here’s a little known fact about Russia’s greatest playwright: he’s also funny! Spend an evening with the beautiful, damaged, poetic, joyous, petty, coarse and tyrannical characters of Chekhov. Chekhov’s world is populated by people who dream of a different life, all the while dealing with the everyday unpredictability of feeling love, disillusionment, and the certain catastrophe that is the next moment.

A JEWISH JOKE

June 20th & 21st, 2016 @ 7:30pm

Directed by David Ellenstein

A story as relevant today as it was during the McCarthy Era…
In 1950’s Hollywood, at the height of the Communist Blacklist, when careers were ruined by a whisper, we meet irascible comedy screenwriter Bernie Lutz. Funny and lovable, Bernie has made his way up the ladder by being a spineless Hollywood sellout. Now, the night before a big red carpet premiere that will make Bernie’s career, he has been asked to name names and give up his friend. He has one day to decide if he will accede to government demands and save his skin, or protect his friend and save his soul in the most serious decision of his life.


MACKENZIE MELEMED

June 28th, 2016 @ 7:30pm

A junior at The Juilliard School in New York City, Mackenzie Melemed has won prizes in numerous international piano competitions. In addition to performances at The White House and Carnegie Hall, he has performed throughout the world, most recently in the Czech Republic, Japan and China.

The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron

August 10 + 12, 2016 @ 8:00pm

August 13, 2016 @ 2:00pm

Robert Dubac’s THE MALE INTELLECT: AN OXYMORON? is an international comedic phenomenon. Described by The New York Times as “Hilarious... a one man tour de force!” it is hands down one of the funniest solo shows you will ever see.

Men and women from eighteen to eighty laugh non-stop as Robert Dubac embarks on a quest to answer the age old question, “What do women want?” With a shrug of his shoulders or a crook of his neck, he seamlessly transforms himself into five hysterical boneheads who offer sidesplitting advice on how to best straddle the gender gap - all while drinking a beer.

Hailed by critics and audiences alike: “THE MALE INTELLECT: AN OXYMORON? is a rare thing; a clever combination of theater and stand-up comedy that is laugh-out-loud funny, provocative and insightful all at once. There are two types of people who should rush and see it - men and women!” - The Providence Journal

Suburban Showgirl

August 15-17, 2016 @ 7:30pm

This dramatic musical comedy takes you into the heart and soul of a modern day dancer/wife/mother. While locked in the bathroom 5 minutes before curtain, former Rockette-turned- Magician's Assistant Wendy Walker looks into her past to understand how her perfectly choreographed life has spun wildly out of control.

Writer-Performer Palmer Davis brilliantly plays over 20 characters whose struggles and triumphs will make you laugh and cry. “Exquisite top to bottom…. Suburban Showgirl has it all!” … Hollywood Times
