The "Noises Off" actors shout a lot, making the words impossible to understand. I took my hearing aids out in order to muffle the volume. Bring ear protection if you are sensitive to loud noises.

Beware: When turning right after walking down the entrance hall there is a small ramp-style step in the floor, leading to a slightly higher floor level. This adjustment is not signed or lit with glowing strips. I tripped on this unexpected rise, and a second member of my party tripped and fell down. A lawsuit waiting to happen! The stairs leading down to the bar are dim as well and need glowing strips to guide the theatergoers.

Winner of the Reader’s Choice Award for “Best Improv Company” – The Bay Guardian

Description

Bringing their own brand of brazen humor to the Big City, the Oakland Playhouse Improv Troupe uses audience suggestions and their own dark and sordid lives to create hilarious improv comedy.

Audience members have been known to cry and even hiccup as they witnessed wringing sqids, anxious plungers, gibberish speaking experts on candlestick making and marital aids, depressed horseshoes, lying monastery valets, and fast-talking pogo sticks.
