  • I can tell you it’s exhilarating. The actors take each other’s hands and jump. The cord is only between them, they are not tied to any anchor point. They support each other. You are the safety net – be there for them.

  • The three stories come together harmoniously on stage. There is not a second of boredom, everything is fluid, and the transition between stories increases suspense – where will they go now? What will happen next?

  • Good people don't always make good performers, but when they do it's most satisfying. These two have lovely commitment, agreement and great stage presence as improvisers. They have a groundedness as improvisers that is powerful, and leads to compelling work.  Recommended!

  • There are so many things you don’t know about yourself, and you could never imagine you would discover. Improvisation will reveal many of them to you, and you will be totally astounded.
