ShawnMikael(s) Back in CoHi Again
ShawnMikael(s) descends on Columbia Heights NW DC for three nights in July and August: July 20th, 27th and then again on August 10, 2012 at the cool friendly confines of Studio 1469, a brand new space that we're hoping becomes a permanent fixture for improv here in DC, and for us in particular.
The lineup for these shows is, in a word, stellar:
The first show, on July 20th, will be hosted by one of the DC standup scene's most talented mainstays, Mariya Alexander. We'll open the by asking a third to join us for the very first time: the talented and tall Taylor Williams-Durant, co-host of the ever-popular Charlie Visconage Show, will play in with us for some opening-act fun.
We'll then turn the stage over to Gin & Ginger, whose high-energy "game-style" play has made them a DC improv scene favorite.
Finally, ShawnMikael(s) take the stage to close out the evening.
The following week, on July 27th, we'll return with an all-new lineup, this time hosted by Sara Armour, who, in a very short period of time has made quite a splash in the DC standup scene.
Sara will be followed by two improv troupes, Telenovela, one of Washington Improv Theater's first Harold teams, and That Was Awkward, formed out of DC's highly energized independent improv scene.
To close the show, ShawnMikael(s) will be joined by guest monologueist Colin Murchie, veteran of many Washington Improv Theater mainstage shows, who not only help us get the show started, but also create atmosphere with his uncanny ability to paint scenes, the stuff of legend among DC improvisors.
Our third and final show of the run, on August 10th, (NOTE: there will be NO SHOW on August 3rd) will find local stand-up legend Doug Powell hosting, followed by the always hilarious improv enigma that is Aboulia. Finally, ShawnMikael(s) will close out this evening and this run of shows.
