Improv A Go Go

Improv A Go Go

Improv A Go Go is a weekly showcase for local improvisational theatre (or improv) groups in the Twin Cities. Produced by Five Man Job and hosted by the Brave New Workshop, it runs most Sundays during the year. [ [ Eat, drink and be merry at local theaters this November | Twin Cities Daily Planet | Minneapolis - St. Paul ] ]

Each week, there are 4-5 improv groups that perform for roughly 20 minutes each. Admission is always just $1. [ [ Improv-A-Go-Go - City Pages (Minneapolis/St. Paul) ] ]

Improv A Go Go began in May 2002. Improv A Go Go is an open venue to all forms of improvised theater. Slots are assigned via a lottery system, which is held three times per year.

Improv A Go Go allows established improv groups to try out new forms, and provides a venue for news groups to get stage experience. Many of these groups come out of the improv classes taught at the Brave New Workshop. [ [ City Pages - Spotlight: Improv-a-Go-Go, Huge Wednesdays ] ] Some improv participants are also a part of the Brave New Workshop's mainstage cast. [ [ OnStage: Funny girl ] ]
