Welcome to the world of Without Annette, a risky, fast-paced comedy about the lives, loves and secrets of the people in an improv class, with Grammy-winning guitarist Laurence Juber playing live. Co-writers Jeff Doucette (Desperate Housewives, Scandal) and Hope Juber (It's The Housewives!, A Very Brady Musical) have created a richly drawn cast of characters who play, laugh, have affairs, uncover hidden truths and finally unite to improvise their own hilarious finale. With a cast cherry-picked from the Groundlings, Second City, the Spolin Players and Shplotz! (among others), each show is different, a unique hybrid of scripted and improv performance of the highest caliber.
"WITHOUT ANNETTE Reawakens Improv at the Whitefire. With a fine cast, razor-sharp direction from co-writer Jeff Doucette and lots of surprisingly well-done scenarios The entire cast are delightful and skilled Everyone else in the cast has his turn in the spotlight and we get to see all of them shine."
