The competition is fierce, fast, funny and family-friendly at this ingenious improv show that pits two teams of sharp-witted performers against each other in an all-out battle for comedy supremacy. With the audience providing suggestions and ultimately proclaiming winners, the squads are challenged to come up with scenes, bits and songs on the spot, in the spirit of TV's Whose Line Is It Anyway? A referee watches the action, calling fouls and keeping score, as the players compete in 7 to 12 different improv games each time, out of a repertoire of more than 100. You'll never see the same show twice, and they keep it clean for the kids. Learn More

This stunning retelling of the Iliad by local playwright Jon Lipsky suggests that the years spent by Greek soldiers on the beachheads of Asia Minor have haunting similarities to the years spent by American soldiers on the beachheads of Vietnam, in the mountains of Afghanistan, and in the desert of Iraq. The lives of the women of Saigon or Baghdad may not be so different from the lives of the “barbarian” women kidnapped onto the plains of Troy. Living in Exile is a compelling war story, but more importantly a story of compassion and the human heart.
