Night at the Improv

That spark of spontaneous creativity that some people can evoke is wonderful to witness, and at tonight’s performance of the Gypsy Cab Co., you’ll get a chance to watch nearly a dozen local performers ham it up on stage in two long-form improvised performances.

“We call it Gypsy Cab because it’s a group of unaffiliated performers that have performed together for a bunch of years, and this was a good way to unite everyone for one show,” explains producer and actor Mike Malyar. The gypsy name also fits because the performers, location and format for the shows change with every performance.

Tonight’s 7:30 p.m. performance at the Avenue Theater, 417 East 17th Avenue, features veteran actors from the Bovine Metropolis Theater, including monologists Pam Farone and Michelle Miracle,who also helped co-produce the show.

The improvisation will be formatted in the Armando style and will begin with suggestions from the audience. A monologist will then interpret that idea into a personal improvised monologue that will inspire the actor’s movements. Two monologue-driven pieces will be performed, with an intermission in between.

Tickets are $10 and include one free drink. For reservations and more information, call 303-321-5925 or visit
