The MAGIC ZOO - Improv comedy show
Weekly Event - Every Sunday: 8:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
The Magic Zoo, directed by Marc Adam Smith (Former Artistic Director, Gotham City Improv; Manhattan Comedy School faculty), is a live improvised comedy spoofing beloved children's public television programs like The Magic Garden and The New Zoo Revue.
As is our signature style, IRTE uses simple costumes, a few props and strong characters for a very theatrical, very silly and very fun show. The Magic Zoo also features live music.
IRTE’s menagerie – led by artistic director Nannette Deasy – include Robert Baumgardner, Curt Dixon, Jamie Maloney and Marcia Sofley. For The Magic Zoo they will be joined by guest performers Evie Aronson (TruTV, HBO Films, Frigid Fest NY), Alena Acker (Mother Eve's Secret Garden of Sensual Sisterhood, Discovery ID), Jeffrey O'Leary (IRTE Ensemble 2013). The group’s collective credits include off-Broadway theater, national tours and feature film.
