Winter doldrums, anybody? Flu season, much? Well, if laughter is the best medicine—and I guess, technically it must be the best medicine for feeling blue at least—get yourself a major dose at on of Baltimore Improv Group (aka BIG)’s multiple performances this weekend. Think you could use a double dose? Make it a marathon with more than one, since it’s never the same show twice (because, you know, it’s improv).
This weekend’s performances are part of Songstock 2014. It’s BIG’s first ever mini-festival showcasing the troupe’s best musical improv each night. If you think you need a little more than improvised showtunes to get you going, rest assured that they’ll also be performing some of their highly regarded long-form improv (as in episode-length performances, rather than just skits) to round out the whole affair. If you attend the Friday night show at 8pm, you’ll get to witness the debut of new musical project called Strings Attached, followed by mainstage troupes Training for Prom and Population: 6. We promise that by the evening’s end, you’ll be rolling in the aisles—maybe a little bruised, but certainly in better shape than when you came in.
Baltimore Improv Group has multiple performances this weekend at Mobtown Theater at Meadow Mill, 3600 Clipper Mill Rd in Baltimore. For more information or to purchase tickets ($10) visit www.bigimprov.org.
