Parking lot across street is free weekend evenings, but it fills up -- don't arrive last minute.

Persimmon, just around the corner on Wisconsin Avenue, is great -- not cheap, and don't rush it. We ate at 6 for 8 pm show then walked across street for coffee.

Join Precipice Improv Theater for a special Improv for Everyone Workshop.  Designed for everyone regardless of experience, the workshop will guide you through fun and playful improv exercises in a gentle and supportive atmosphere.

Improv training isn’t just for actors or comedians.  Much as yoga helps you to stretch your body and relax your mind, improv exercises help you to relax your body and mind, exercise your imagination and creativity, and build skills and attitudes like these:

  • self confidence
  • communication
  • trust and collaboration
  • adaptability
  • optimism and playfulness
  • empathy
  • awareness

The workshop is taught by Gary Jacobs.  Gary as been teaching, producing, and directing improv for 28 years.  He now teaches on both the East and West Coasts.   His last eight workshops in Bethesda, Santa Barbara, Santa Monica, and Ventura, California were sold out.  Gary is currently artistic director of Precipice Improv Theater.
