Improv Games in Central Park Followed by Drinks at The Three Monkeys

  • Aug 29, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's get together again in Central Park and play some improv games! There's no prior improv experience required, and if you prefer to just watch, you're welcome to join as well!

I'll bring my box of warm ups and games, but please feel free to bring ideas on your favorite exercises as well!

After we're done playing (around 8pm), we will head over to The Three Monkeys at 236 W. 54th St. (between Broadway and 8th Ave.) for drinks and snacks. Please check both the upstairs and downstairs parts of the bar to make sure you don't miss us! 

How to Find Crime Busters Rock:

Crime Busters Rock is in the southern part of the park, just east of Center Drive. Here are the exact directions with Columbus Circle (the southwestern corner of the park) as the starting point:

Walk northeast along Central Park Drive towards West Drive.

Turn right onto West Drive.

West Drive turns into Center Drive, if you bear left (north).

Crime Busters Rock will be to the right (east) of Center Drive (just a few yards in from Center Drive towards Wollman Rink, behind the benches).

If you arrive on time, you'll see me there with a yellow sign that says "Improv in the Park." If you're late, look for one or more circles of people having a blast doing improv in the surrounding lawn area :).

Here's a link to a Google map with the route outlined: http://goo.gl/maps/XhvsK

You can also find us on the Google Maps app on any smartphone by searching for "Crime Busters Rock" and using your GPS/navigation functionality to get directions to it.

If the above directions are unclear, please send me a message via Meetup at least 48 hours prior to the event, and I'll meet you at Columbus Circle at 5:45pm, so that we can walk over together.

By attending this event, you agree to the terms and conditions outlined on our About page.

    I may be late and am not sure where it is. If anyone wants to text their cell, it would be great. I don't have access to this site on my cell. [masked]

      Louiza, one of the best ways is to enter at the Columbus Circle entrance, head right and ask people where Wollman Rink is. That should put you on the right path, and eventually, you'll see a couple of big circles of us, on the right, by Crime Busters' rock. Just don't ask for directions to the rock, because people likely won't know where it is. :) Fare thee well in your journey.

    Can"t make it to Thursdays Improv.

    Getting together with my "writers group", and also working on a another drama script

    "Propaganda"

    Log-line: Impostors(s) can be lovely and quite charismatic.
    Don’t be deceived by their stories...

    I've also made some changes to;
    "Comedy Of Craft Improvisation"

      ARe you sure that you guys aren't Cassie Chadwick in disguise, who pretended to be Andrew Carnegie's daughter... Or can it be that one of you are Frank Abagnale, Gerald Barnbaum, or Ravi Desai?

      This could very well be the next "Central Park's Imposters cast members"; except for Spartacus not sure that (Third Servile war against Roman Republic) Spartacus would be a good fit BUT interesting that you should make mention of Spartacus
