Huge Theater, located in Uptown, is "an artist-led non-profit dedicated to supporting the Twin Cities improv community through performance and education". They are also devoted to long-form improv. What is long-form improv, you ask? Good question. You know why it's a good question? Because I asked it too. Here's the answer, ripped form Huge's webpage: " Long form improvisation is the art of creating performances that are unscripted. It is different than playing improvised "games" or improvising within a scripted piece." Sounds cool - especially the part about it being art. I always like a chance to wear black and look sullen.
As it turns out, there's no reason to be sullen. Not when the shows are only $5.. In addition, Huge is a sponsor and we get 2 for 1 tickets. That's $2.50 each, which is just a notch above free. With the money you're saving on the show, let's meet at It's Greek to Me , which is less than a block away, for some Ouzo, Gyros, and Baklava around 6:15. The we'll head over to Huge around 7:30 for an 8 PM show.
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE!!! Show change. When I listed this, the Saturday 8 PM show was "The Drum Machine" that has now changed to Star Trek The Next Improvisation. Other than the show, everything else is the same (cost, time, etc.) Here's a link to Huge where you will know everything I know since that's where I read it right before I wrote it. http://hugetheater.com/
