Our graduate Big Blue Door improvisers form pairs and trios to perform instant comic mini-plays bursting with brains, brio, and brilliance! These are intense scenes of grounded characters and sharp dialog like nothing Charlottesville has ever seen before. And will never see again. Because each set is entirely created on the spot from an audience suggestion.

Brian Weisbrod is a UVa grad who studied economics. He’s from Richmond, lives in Crozet, but still manages an ardent attachment to the New England Patriots football franchise. By day he’s an assistant controller, which apparently involves accounting.
Jennifer Slate is a basement talk-show host, and a mother of several children who can still quote Ferris Bueller. She’s also an essayist and blogger.
Maya Hislop hails from somewhere in New York City but emigrated to Charlottesville for The University’s graduate school English Department and she speaks it very well. Ask her about her most recent summer doing fieldwork in the Deep South. (I plan to!)
Larry Goldstein teaches Drama at Tandem Friends School and performs with theaters all over the area. He also house-sits in houses all over the area. He’ll be directing a play called ‘Fight Night’ at Live Arts next year. If you audition he promises to shave.
Nik Hayes is a UVa grad who studied biochemistry but what he learned hasn’t stopped him from inhabiting an organic form. He works at the UVa Medical Center. He enjoys long walks on the beach but only if the walking is parallel to the shoreline.
Jude Silveira took the first improv class Big Blue Door ever offered in Charlottesville and he’s still trying to get it right. Jude works for that legal company that does legal stuff. Originally from the seafaring regions of New England his interests include the seafaring regions of New England.
Hey, would you like to learn longform improv comedy and perform like these people?
