The second night of Mprov featured two more shows of improvised theatre. Huge shock, right?
The 8pm show was opened by On The Spot who had to do 15 scenes in 30 minutes. Which they managed to squeeze in just under the half hour and featured a man doing the taxes while his buddy did the dishes. Then The Brat took the stage featuring Raoul and Pepper saving a baby from a briss and Father Jones’ crisis of conscience for leaving the church for his new wife, Baby Girl. Finally, Kirsten & Sandi used their Canadian prairie charms to tell the tale of Bill coming back to town to win the jaded heart of Annie Jill. Sadly, 11 yr old Betsy had plans of her own.
The late show started with Ghost Jail writing and performing feeding each other. We saw a dirty cop get caught with his pants down and the search for a cure for love. Second act was Improv Ronin and their murder mystery, whodunnit? Turns out that the butcher is a pretty good guess for a grizzly crime by a clock. He was undone in the end, like so many others, by not being able to read an analog clock. The show closed with musical improv from Way The Hell Off-Broadway. With a songs about an old-age home, and some ragtime ditties, they capped off another great night of improv with a love song to an audience member whose love life “was complicated” but a song can untangle even the knottiest situations…
Tonight, the out-of-town acts take the stage!
