It's that time of the month... Leela's Ladies' Night! Three all female-identified improv ensembles take the stage. Every 2nd Friday of the Month.
FOX is Erin Daruszka, Nonie Kimpitak, and Asli Ors. After experiencing a truly connected and vulnerable play style at David Razowsky and Rachel Hamilton's improv retreat in Occidental in the summer of 2015, they had no choice but to form a long-form troupe to pour their hearts to one another on stage. They use music as an emotional catalyst to unfold the truth of their characters. Each scene shows a mirror to the audience and invites them to reflect back on their lives. Sometimes provoking, sometimes perplexing and other times funny, FOXY for sure will take you on a journey of true feelings and emotions. They perform regularly in Bay Area, CA.
