Presented by Impro Theatre
Presenting a theatrical experience unlike any other, Impro Theatre starts with audience suggestions to create completely improvised, full-length plays in the styles of the world's greatest writers. With L.A. Noir UnScripted, the Impro's cadre of characters makes the dark and seedy underbelly of 1940s and '50s Los Angeles come alive through an improvised tale of seduction and murder. Starting with audience suggestions, this comedy homage embraces the film noir world of femme fatales and private dicks in a spontaneous play filled with music, moxie and mayhem. L.A. Noir UnScripted has a cast of 14 actor-improvisers and a live jazz quartet improvising an accompanying score – and will only be seen by those who are at the Ford on this night.
Writing about Impro Theatre, American Theatre magazine said, “These virtuosic talents simply are as superhuman as they seem. These serious professional actors, classically trained, can write on their feet better than many writers can type at a desk. Impro’s work has taught me to demand more from the theatre." Los Angeles Times calls Impro Theatre, “Amazing! One of the funniest evenings in town. The troupe spins an entire play into comedy gold right before your eyes.”
