The night opens with three movie “trailers” written on the fly, followed by a 45-minute “feature film” that places the actors in a police-station setting. Some characters and relationships are recurring throughout the season, lending to an episodic feel to the show, but otherwise, the audience sees the making of a story as it happens. Adding to the improvisational vibe are cinematic prompts, wherein actors can call for an “action montage” or “3D moment,” bringing the show directly into the crowd.
