Hitchcocked!

Austin, TX

"Hitchcocked!" brings the cinema of Alfred Hitchcock alive on stage. Springboarding from an audience suggestion of where our movie will begin, the cast then weaves together a tale featuring all the signposts of a Hitchock film: mistaken identity, obsessive behavior, intrigue, madness... murder!
One of the most unique and challenging shows mounted at the Hideout Theatre, "Hitchcocked!" attempts to translate cinematic ideas to the stage, both specifically and tonally. Utilizing part of the cast as just "scene-ographers", the troupe creates mood and suspense by using real players to communicate abstract ideas (fear, paranoia, claustrophobia, etc.). As well, through light, sound, and stage, the show strives to suggest camera movement (2 shot to close up), camera angles (shot-reverse shot), montage, and monumental climaxes... well, you know, in the movie sense.

Now?

Los Angeles, CA

Now? is an improvised show based on the honesty of the moment. Every show begins in silence, allowing the players to feel a true connection and then to move forward and explore that world and its characters. Each show will be comedic, dramatic, patient or fast as the moment calls for. The only rule is the be present, now.

Through playing together for the past five years, Now? has grown a level of familiarity and chemistry that is very rare. This allows their shows to be played with a depth that is almost unheard of in improv.

The best improv can only come from implicit trust, and there is no way to cheat that.
