Friday, May 6th at McGuffey Art Center, top floor, Studio 20, come check out Big Blue Door’s spring performance groups, featuring The Echo and Short Term Analysis!
The Echo uses fragments of speech overheard recently by audience members–opinions, accusations, confessions, and advice–to create a unique longform improv comedy show. Veteran Big Blue Door improvisers Larry Goldstein, Debby Prum, Deborah Arenstein, Nauder Namaky, Kirk Martini, Shawn Hirabayashi and Finn Mehigan use fragments of speech given them by audience members to begin scenes. The scenes are rapidly restarted over and over until the characters and location are discovered, and then through the course of the set the scenes are played out in multiple universes with different outcomes.
Short Term Analysis is an original longform comedy improv show created by Big Blue Door veterans Nauder Namaky, Finn Mehigan, and Deborah Arenstein based on what might be Charlottesville’s worst (and least licensed) therapists. Short Term Analysis is…
- Hilariously funny!
- Not confidential!
- Not approved by any psychiatric, medical, or psychological professional organization!
Short Term Analysis is the comedy that proves that sometimes an improv show is just an improv show!
