Outrageously creative! A night well spent. And priced right, too.
You can go see a movie, or go see live theater made up on the spot.

Description

February 14 at 11pm: Special Late Night gender-switch show!

Impro Theatre and C.A.F.E arts present a one-time only Jane Austen UnScripted gender switch  late-night performance on Valentines Day.  This is the same critically acclaimed improvised Jane Austen, but with a twist: the gentlemen will play the ladies and ladies will portray the gentlemen. Price  include a glass of complimentary champagne and cookies.   The essence of Austen’s brilliant and timeless romantic comedies and social satires is brought faithfully to life by this expert team of funny and gifted actors, whose recent explorations of great literary figures include Shakespeare, Dickens, Sondheim, and Tennessee Williams. Impro Theatre is an unscripted repertory theatre company. Since 1988 Impro Theatre (formerly LA Theatresports) has brought innovative unscripted theatre to Los Angeles and the world.  The company has performed at festivals from Amsterdam to New Zealand receiving standing ovations, critical praise and first place awards. The company’s goal is to take the core narrative and style elements of great playwrights and writers and create a new play using nothing but the essence of the author’s work and an audience suggestion.
