GROUPMIND PRODUCTIONS BRINGS CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED SHOW IMPROV MONSTER TO ROSWELL IN JUNE
Improv Comedy Show Marks the First Step in Events @590’s Efforts to Become the Historic City’s Hottest Nightspot
ATLANTA (May 3, 2011)- For two years, IMPROV MONSTER has proven itself one of Atlanta’s most innovative improv comedy shows, with a veteran cast performing every week at Midtown’s Relapse Theatre. Now Groupmind Productions is taking IMPROV MONSTER outside the perimeter, with a weekly show on Saturdays at 8pm starting June 4th in the Events @ 590 space, upstairs from Pico Autentico and All Y’alls Wine & Gourmet Market in historic Roswell. Unlike other improv shows, in which the audience provides a one-word suggestion to inspire a scene, IMPROV MONSTER uses true stories from audience members (or special guests) as the source for its character-driven storytelling. “They don't literally act out the stories, but draw on little details, turns of phrase or overall themes as springboards,” said Curt Holman of Creative Loafing, who described the show as having “classic sketch comedy structure, despite being off the cuff.” IMPROV MONSTER is the first of several improv shows Groupmind Productions plans to bring to sophisticated OTP audiences. Combining professionalism and class with healthy doses of wit and whimsy, the company is dedicated to spreading the wonders of Chicago- and San Francisco-style long-form improv comedy throughout the metro Atlanta area.
