JULY SHOW DESCRIPTIONS
 
FOILED: The Two Man Musical
One improviser. One musician. An unforgettable, fully-improvised musical where only one hero has the power to stop a villain from carrying out his dastardly plot.
 
Tag Team
Using the suggestion of a location, Tag Team builds a highly-physical world where anything is possible - as long as it can be done in full body spandex suits. Tossing a ball back and forth? The Suits must carry the ball from one improviser to the other. Climbing a ladder? The Suits become the ladder. Riding a donkey? Yeah, you get it. It'll leave you laughing and leave us exhausted.
 
God Bless You Pikachu
This is a sketch show that follows the structure of Calvin and Hobbes with the content of Pokemon. It's a show about a boy named Ash and his stuffed Pikachu. Ash traverses the complicated and wonderful world and grows up. The main structure of the show revolves around it's staging.
 
Dramatic Irony
Dramatic Irony is a show about secrets, the light ones and the heavy ones, and how our tiny personal worlds are affected when those secrets are concealed and in turn revealed.
 
Bodega
Bodega is a diverse, long form improv troupe that performs The Living Room with a cultural twist.
 
Good God Women and Friends!
Up and coming indie team Good God Women invites some of their favorite stand-ups, storytellers and improvisers to tell monologues that inspire comedic hilarity! 
 
Big Attitude
Big Attitude is a comedy group about big characters, performed through live multimedia, original songs, and sketches.
 
Conor Allen: Let's Talk
ImprovBoston Mainstage cast member and stand-up Conor Allen combines his love for improv and stand-up with a set consisting of nothing but crowd work. Come watch and talk to Conor because he will have no material planned. Seriously, he needs you to be there.
 
The Oregon Fail: You Have Died of Comedy
The classic educational computer game is brought to life as the audience holds the fate of our brave wagon crew of improvisers in their hands!
 
Good God Women and Friends!
Up and coming indie team Good God Women invites some of their favorite stand-ups, storytellers and improvisers to tell monologues that inspire comedic hilarity! 
 
Choosical: Make Your Own Musical
A fast paced, interactive musical where the audience decides what happens every step of the way.
 
Cuddle Party 
Cuddle Party, Boston's most endearing indie improv troupe, is first and foremost the best of friends. Cliché maybe, but it allows the troupe to have incredibly fun sets due to heightened trust, support, and confidence. The troupe is currently performing "Party of 6", which is a hybrid version of a long-form improv structure made famous by the group, Dasariski, with elements of the Deconstruction. 
 
Straight Outta Context: Hip Hop Improv Comedy
YO, CHECK IT. Improv comedy and hip hop meet in this raucous party of totally improvised scenes that flow into freestyle hip hop anthems over a beatboxed rhythm. Featuring a cast of veteran improvisers from the IB community, this high-energy show presents musical improv like you’ve never seen before.
 
Food Truck
"Four people, four dishes, one truck, one scene." The hardest working cooks in the food truck business talk about life, goals and where the de-boned chicken thighs are kept.
 
Cuddle Party Presents: Party of 6 / There's No Time!
Party of 6 is a show that uses a suggestion from the audience to create two distinct locations that contain members of the Party of 6 during which time the performers use “remember when..” moments to move backward in time to heighten relationships/experiences.
 
Total Feltdown Presents: Fuzzy Wizz Bang’s Happy Fun Time Extravaganza 
Join the fuzzy (and not so fuzzy) members of Total Feltdown in a completely improvised journey into your childhood using the power of puppets and imagination.
