While I admire that three men were able to take three suggestions and make a coherent 70 minute play out of it, it wasn't very funny. There were moments that were funny (particularly the scene about meeting a couple of Inuits), but overall, there...continued

Very entertaining. All were clever and did well. Liked the location because of accessible parking and nice to have it in Bethesda. 1 1/2 hours is just about the right length, any longer without intermission wouldn't work. Our troupe included 2...continued

Improv is not easy to do, especially when poor audience suggestions are given. This group appears to be relatively talented, but would likely be better served by seeking one or two prompts from the audience instead of six. Additionally, with...continued

I could have done without the warm-up group. Both casts had members made very little contribution. There was no program, so there was no credit given to any of the cast or crew. No names or experience....

Very talented improve actors and singers. They take audience suggestions and in the first hour create a musical on the spot. Then a short break and the next group comes out and takes 6 places and turns them into a play immediately. Very clever...continued

When I went last year there were fewer than two dozen of us in the audience, this time there was close to a hundred. So word is getting out about this talented group of improve players. They started by asking the audience for six location and...continued

Lots of fun. A pleasure to watch such talent -- and for such a reasonable price, convenient location, and great seats (no matter where you sit).

I’m a huge fan of Precipice Improv Theater. Their most recent show offered two of the funniest scenes I’ve seen on stage in months—and that includes comparisons to several of DC’s finest theater companies.

In the first scene, a plumber (who...continued

I would be interested to go see another show just to find out how different it would be from the one we saw last Saturday

I liked it, and it was funny in parts, but slow moving. Thought it would be better if it was shorter skits, and faster paced. More like "who's line is it anyways"

Precipice performs free-form improv by mostly inexperienced players based on suggestions form the audience. There were some inspired moments, and the group did well to bring the performance piece to a satisfying conclusion. It was worth the very...continued

The actors took two suggestions of unrelated non-geographic locations (comic book convention and speakeasy) from the audience and turned them into a 1 1/4 hour play that was consistently entertaining and often very funny. From an improv...continued

With improv, it's often about the suggestions that the audience throws out. They take the first two suggestions of two locations, and I wasn't thrilled with what was suggested, but the actors handled the topics well; there really were some funny...continued

I'm being a little generous with the stars because I like the idea of what they are doing, and because the tickets are very reasonable. The 3 people got off to a very slow start with almost no laughs for the first 20 minutes. Also, the theatre...continued

I have been to Improv Theatres before so I was expecting to participate in how the whole play unfolded. As it was, the crowd only got to choose two non-geographical locations. The actors did what they could with our choices (which was quite...continued
