Review: Instant Theatre – Shakespeare After Dark! The Anniversary Show

Comedy, Culture, Events, Improv, Performance, Reviews, Showcase

June 19, 2017

With uproarious laughter and perfect comic timing, the audience was transfixed by what they saw. We had an audience with “The Bard” himself, Bartitsu and rapier fighting by Affair of Honor, an Elizabethan complements contest, an insult battle with pirate ships and pickle juice as the main insult components and Matheson the best drunk thespian they could summon.  Shakespeare After Dark is very close to being sorcery on its own, but they pull some serious magic Saturday night.  We can’t say this enough but this is absolutely some of the best improv you can see in the city.

In Defense of “The Interview”

Opinion, The Truth

December 31, 2014

Over the last few weeks Sony has had to play a game of “will they, won’t they?” with the release of James Franco and Seth Rogen’s latest comedy offering, The Interview. Originally, they stood up to the pressure of a hacktivist group based out of North Korea who was holding the company’s internal information ransom in order to prevent the release of the movie. Then, the theaters that were going to be screening the film started to fold, and with no one willing to screen the damn thing, Sony eventually cancelled it… That was not the end of the story though, as the movie went from being a late-year comedy piece to a statement of freedom of speech with everyone, from people who would never have watched the movie original, straight on up to the President of the United States calling for (at least) a digital release of the movie as a strong show of freedom.

Reviews

September 8, 2014

From the minds of the comedy duo Virginia Jack comes this wholly improvised tale of women in prison. Or tales, rather, as each night the audiences will be getting an entirely different show. Each of the prisoners in Orange Is The New Blank get a quick piece of inspiration suggested by the crowd, be it an emotion, an object, a favorite book and then a title for that night’s “episode”. At that point, the cast dive in and tell a full-length story about the ladies behind bars. (more…)
