I wanted to let you know that there is a new theater company in Chicago. Angie McMahon and I have started Under the Gun Theater. We will be producing all kinds of comedy theater including improv, sketch, standup, plays, musicals and more.
UTG Theater will be producing Hump Night. We are now on hiatus, but Hump Night will return in September at our new digs at the Apollo Studio Theater on Lincoln! Expect more details about that soon.
Now on to the fun stuff!
New Improv Performance Class!
This is a ten week class for intermediate and advanced improv students with some long form improv experience. You will learn how to create fun, interesting, two-person scenes; explore different ways to create second beats from those scenes; and try connecting different threads at the end of your piece. We will work on games within scenes, how to build group scenes, and put it all together in a form similar to the Harold.
Do you love improv, but live far away from Chicago and New York and donâ€™t have access to great improv coaching? Want a different perspective on improv from a instructor who taught for iO Theater and UCB Theater in New York, two of the giants behind the long form improv revolution? Get quality improv coaching anywhere from me via Skype.
With the new company comes a new mailing list and since UTG Theater will be producing Hump Night and since I'll be teaching all of my local classes through UTG, I'll be moving people from this list to the new mailing list for UTG.
If for some reason, you don't want to be on that list, you can easily unsubscribe after the first email, or you can send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be happy to unsubscribe you before the first newsletter.
