This was most enjoyable. The Critical Choice alternatives created 2 different story lines. The actors were able to turn on a dime from one story line to the other. The lightning fast changes became more and more dramatic as they upped the stakes each time. The actors were experienced and able to deal with the smallest to the largest plot changes. It was funny at times, side-splittingly so and then also serious. They never played for laughs, and laughs were there as well as the chills and thrills. The music added to the fun; a backdrop and projections were used at times. There were hoky sound effects from the sound booth, which made us laugh. When a knocked over water bottle made a loud metallic sound, the actors used that as a way to twist and turn the plot into a different direction. The choice our audience chose seemed mundane, hot buttered rum or hot chocolate...it was not mundane after all.
We were allowed to choose day or night, inside or outside, and the weather. The rest was up to the very skilled actors...Highly recommend this group and would go back again soon. Fun!!!
An added plus on Fridays there are food trucks outside the event, which provided a street scene/party atmosphere when we first arrived. Thanks for the discounted tickets!!
BATS Improv, the Bay Area’s favorite improvisational theatre company, presents a fully improvised play with a unique twist. At one crucial point, a single story splits into two parallel stories…with unexpected results. Fully improvised and inspired by the audience, who also get to choose the critical moment where the story splits in two. A funny and sometimes dramatic look at the notion of “what if”?
