This winter Big Blue Door is preparing two brand-new longform improv sets for their Charlottesville debut!
The Helix evolved from a form called ‘Nautilus’ created by former improv coach and current Daily Show-writer Alex Marino. Originally a practice exercise for improv group Hell Buffalo in New York City, then a practice exercise for Big Blue Door’s Smallprov run two years ago, this January Big Blue Door’s own Larry Goldstein, Debby Prum, Max Hoecker, Deborah Arenstein, Will May, John Lawrence, Melissa Wender, Ryan Wender, and Jason Megill will present the world premiere of the Helix as a stand-alone show! The Helix features location-based scenes created in an unfolding sequence
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!
