Leela: True Medusa, Shades of Grey, Armando Company
Leela: True Medusa, Shades of Grey, Armando Company starring David Razowsky
Three fantastic improv ensembles all in one night!
The evening opens with True Medusa performing an original longform inspired by the teachings of Julie Payne (SF's The Committee, LA's The Wims.) Through honest check-ins improvised dance/movement and scenes, the ladies of True Medusa weave together heart felt and hilarious feminist musings, creating a show Rosie the Riveter would be proud of...
Tonight's True Medusa cast includes:
Directed by: Jill Eickmann
Next up is Shades of Grey which is comprised of Leela Company Members and Bay Area improv teachers, Marcus Sams and Jill Eickmann. They perform improv comedy that tickles your funny bone and warms your heart and have performed their unique brand of humor for audiences across the country. Their stories are comprised of universal characters who live in a world that is not black and white
***And for one night only! David Razowsky, master improv teacher, host of popular improv podcast A.D.D Comedy, previous Artistic Director of The Second City (LA) and frequent artistic collaborator with Steve Carrell, Stephen Colbert, and Amy Sedaris, guest stars as the monologist for Leela's Armando Company.
Developed by legendary improvisor and teacher, Armando Diaz (The Magnet, NYC), The Armando Diaz Theatrical Experience is a long-form improvised structure played at improv houses across the country. The premise is simple. Truth inspires great improv. A guest monologist improvises true stories, and a cast of some of the best improvisors of the SF Bay Area improvise scenes inspired by these truths. What follows is a patchwork of truthful artistic play at its finest.
