Sondheim UnScripted  | 

May 5 — May 6

Impro Theatre’s Sondheim UnScripted is a completely improvised “musical revue” in the style of one of Broadway’s most acclaimed artists, Stephen Sondheim. The on stage cast and improvising piano virtuoso work together as an ensemble to create songs with the intricate rhymes, soaring counter melodies, and complex themes that are all hallmarks of Sondheim’s work, creating a wholly original, thrilling musical revue so closely resembling Sondheim’s work, you’d swear you knew the songs even though they’re completely made-up on the spot for every performance.

About Impro Theatre

Impro Theatre

Impro Theatre’s Main Company creates completely improvised, full-length plays in the styles of the world’s greatest playwrights, authors and composers. With no pre-planning or prepared scenarios, the performers combine verbal dexterity and robust physicality to bring character and plot to life in an instant, making each Impro Theatre show unique and unlike any other theatrical experience. Founded as Los Angeles Theatresports in 1988, Impro Theatre has evolved from a successful short form improv troupe into a critically acclaimed improvisational theater company. In southern California, Impro has performed sold-out shows at South Coast Repertory, The Broad Stage in Santa Monica, North Coast Repertory in San Diego, Falcon Theatre in Burbank, and Pasadena Playhouse, as well as venues around the world including the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, The Athenaeum Theatre in Chicago, The Melbourne Fringe in Australia and Theatre Adyar in Paris. Impro Theatre’s Main Company has received multiple Critics’ Picks in the Los Angeles Times, Backstage West, and L.A. Weekly, and many shows have been Ovation Recommended. The Los Angeles Times calls them, “Amazing! One of the funniest evenings in town. The troupe spins an entire play into comedy gold right before your eyes.” Stage & Cinema says, “As high a degree of general excellence in writing, acting, and direction as I have seen in any theater company in America.”
