What would Rod Serling think about “Twilight Zone Unscripted” Impro Theatre’s phenomenal foray into his world? Completely improvised and currently performing at the Falcon Theatre this is a “must see” show. A rotating cast of talented actors creates four half hour episodes before the audiences’ eyes; each is unique and individual and will never be seen again. This is the group who’s “Jane Austen, Unscripted” shows have wowed audiences and maintain a loyal following. With “Twilight Zone” they prove there are equally compelling and funny in the paranormal.
Audience members don’t have to be familiar with Serling’s television “oeuvre” to enjoy and appreciate the genius improvisational genius of this group . . . it adds to the experience.
From the bare black stage with few set pieces to the grayscale costumes to the telepathic communication amongst the actors any of these “Twilight Zone, Unscripted” shows during the Falcon run will amaze and entertain. But, since each show is completely improvised, start to finish, no two shows will be alike.
On Sunday, September 8, 2013 the ensemble (Lisa Fredrickson, Kelly Holden-Bashar, Brian Lohman, Jo McGinley, Ryan Smith and Floyd VanBuskirk) took turns acting, narrating ala Serling and providing sound effects in four separate “episodes.” They warmed up with the two in Act I then things really cooked in Act II. Thanks for a favorite, never before to be used again, Impro character name “Mr. Moosh!” Rod Serling would be proud.
Even most of the crew members are also improvising lights, sound and music!
So, go. Don’t miss the opportunity for a totally entertaining, not to mention stimulating evening of theater.
