I do a bunch of Improv, and what can be so magical about it is that there's the possibility of failure.
I just saw a production of Shakespeare 's Midsummer Night's Dream at the Secret Theatre in long Island City which captured that essence of risk along with the beauty of Shakespeare.
The cast has rehearsed all of the parts, and they don't know who they're playing until the audience pulls their names out of a hat.
The night I saw was WONDERFUL.
I loved the direction, and the performers gave us their joy in performance. I eagerly want to see it again, when the casting will be different, but the caliber of performance the same.
SEE THIS SHOW NOW.
