@ The Actors' Workshop
The informality of The Performance Cult is uppermost. A loose collection of performance artists, some with backgrounds in improv, prepare their pieces separately and then, whoever shows up ready gets time on stage. They've agreed among themselves that each piece is to have some grounding in real experiences.
Otherwise, apparently there are no restrictions. Styles and personalities and approaches vary. Story-telling, monologues, improv bits, and show-and-tell were part of the evening I saw, though they are not designed to be repeated. Put-luck is the norm.
The show costs seven bucks, and the artists are imaginative and sincere.
Give them a try...
