Improv to Go

 I believe we have all watched Who’s Line is it Anyway at one point or another, haven’t we?  I was blessed with seeing my first Improv show at the F.M. Kirby Center in WIlkes-Barre, PA. Drew Carey and the Improv Allstars was the show. The Kirby Center is a beautiful theater, and deserves much recognition due to it long history. Beverages are served before the entrance to the actual theater area. No rowdy drunks allowed, lol. Memorabilia  and other articles are sold as well, so bring a couple extra bucks if you ever go. Needless to say, after a few cocktails and being “in” the show I was having an amazing time! Ever since, I’ve been hooked. I love Improv. I came across the following clip and I wanted to share it. Enjoy!

Improv Everywhere causes scenes of chaos and joy in public places. Created in August of 2001 by Charlie Todd, Improv Everywhere has executed over 100 missions involving tens of thousands of undercover agents. The group is based in New York City.

Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular

The holiday season kicks into full swing on Friday, Nov. 12, when the Rockettes roll into the Providence Performing Arts Center for a high-heeled, high-energy rousing rendition of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular.

Performed annually since 1933, the Rockettes’ signature Christmas Spectacular features more than 300 colorful costumes, a cast and crew of more than 100, beloved Christmas songs and precision dance techniques that are exact down to the angle of the cheekbone and the gaze of the eyes, according to Mary Cavett, who signed on with the Rockettes in 2008, after a rigorous and highly competitive audition. “One of the biggest secrets is that our arms are behind each other’s back, but we’re not allowed to touch each other.”

Cavett, who has studied ballet and jazz since she was about 5 years old, said she didn’t land a spot with the Rockettes in her first audition a year earlier. But a year later, she realized her dream of being a part of the dance troupe whose history dates back more than 75 years. “I think they’re legendary — they’re American icons,” she said. “And even as we move forward with updated shows and modern sets they’re still classic American dancers. They started when showbiz was showbiz — with all of its glamour and sparkle — and that sort of glamour still resonates with people; everyone loves them.”

Check out the National Radio City Christmas Spectacular tour dates.

The Radio City Music Hall schedule for the Radio City Christmas Spectacular: shows begin November 5 through December 30.

NEW YORK (AP) – As if the morning commute wasn’t odd enough, intrepid New Yorkers trying to make their way to work on Tuesday had to battle past hordes of the walking dead.

Two dozen zombies, their clothes spattered with fake blood, were staggering up and down the block outside Madison Square Garden. Downtown, others shuffled across the Brooklyn Bridge.

Some pedestrians looked startled or amused by the ghost-white actors with bruised-looking eyes. Some people ignored them entirely. Others whipped out their cell phone cameras
