Unexpected Productions are known for performing genres at a level of excellence that make it hard to believe these stylized shows are unscripted. We have been leading the way in a new format that has taken the nation by storm, named GenrePROV. In the past three decades, we have performed GenrePROV at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, Seattle Opera and numerous festivals world-wide. Now, we are presenting Genre House on Sunday evenings.
From the shoot'em up cop dramas to the period comedies, Genre House explores different styles of playwrights, movies, and literature, then creates stories totally inspired and generated by audience input!
Over the years, we have improvised in the style of David Mamet, Rad Bradbury, Edgar Allen Poe, opera and countless other styles and genres. Genre House is a striking show where the improvisers will explore film, theatre, and literary genres unscripted. Our expert improvisers spend countless hours rehearsing and studying the various style/genres, they just need YOU.
Past genres include; video games like Final Fantasy, Dirty Harry, William Shakespeare, film noir, Tennessee Williams, 80's teen comedies, Law and Order, Arthur Miller, sci-fi TV series, Elvis films, Chekov, disaster movies, Samuel Beckett, horror movies, romantic comedies, David Mamet, musical theater, sitcoms, Lifetime movie, infomercials... the list goes on...
In the future, Genre House will be exploring new genres/style like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Dowton Abbey and the works of Aaron Sorkin, Steven Soderbergh, the Cohen brothers and additional contemporary formats and writers.
