Set during the time that Lee Harvey Oswald was held in the custody of the Dallas police, this new play takes a sideways look at a major turning point in American history. Christian Levatino's docudrama takes place in an office within police headquarters where homicide Captain William J. Fritz is given the task of interrogating Oswald. With the nation waiting for answers, the two discuss Van Heflin, Russia, Coca-Cola, Jim Brown, the AFL, backyard photographs and that Friday afternoon in Dealy Plaza. The play won Best of Fringe Extensions at the 2013 Hollywood Fringe Festival, as well as receiving a nomination for the Playwriting O Face Award. Learn More

Having used Skype for work, I know that technical difficulties abound. So, I was very curious to see how this would work out for improv comedy. It went as expected. The San Francisco cast seems to be a little more trained for improv than the LA cast, but it was still enjoyable. Sound issues were numerous, but were incorporated into the skits well. I would definitely go again with a larger crowd.
Quotes & Highlights
- "Quirky," "Really funny" with "sparks of brilliance" and "an intriguing idea with loads of potential." - LA Weekly
In the first half of the show, audience members are treated as producers and writers and asked for suggestions to shape the shows they'll see that night. Once everyone is accustomed to the techno improv format, the cast takes the show to the next level with long-form improv and more audience involvement on and off stage as both cities jam online.
