L.A.s newest improv sensation Improvatorium will present, Death, Lies & Alibis (costumed and improvised Agatha Christie) at Theatre Asylum. The full-length improvised play will involve audience suggestions throughout the evening making each performance a unique experience.
Coming off a successful run of Now Playing, in which the Improvatorium players gave the same irreverent treatment to Film Noir and Roman Epic, the group is upping the bar by attempting to improvise the intricate web of truth and lies that ultimately have to add up to solving a murder.
Featuring: Grant Baciocco, Kevin Berntson, Gareth Berrow, Brian Clark, Jayne Entwistle, Peggy Etra, Leslee Harman, Alison Mork, Carla Rudy, Chris Sheets, Matt Vlahakis, Vanessa Whitney.
Followed each night by the Asylum Improv Jam @ 10pm
Hosted by Jonathan Caplan and Brennan Vetter
