The Sleepover was created by famed improv guru, Armando Diaz, for a New York improv group called Mother, and brought to Charlottesville this January by Big Blue Door’s own Shawn Hirabayashi, JP Riggle, Nauder Namaky, Brian Weisbrod, Kirk Martini, Finn Mehigan, and Erik Swanson. The Sleepover is intensive-character-based, theatrical comedy (Or comedic theater?) in which each performer creates a unique character entirely from scratch and plays that character through multiple scenes and combinations!
We’ll have a short preview and prelude at Big Blue Door’s Improv Night on Thursday, January 21st at 7pm at Cville Coffee. (Hosted by OK Stupid!)
The first full performance is Friday, February 5th as part of First Fridays at McGuffey Art Center!
