---------FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ---------
For the first time in the storied history of Geva Comedy Improv, we will be attempting to produce an epic reduction of the ENTIRE GEVA THEATRE CENTER SEASON, as GCI proudly presents:
May 21 – May 24, 2008
Geva Theatre’s entire season, performed by eight guys. In 90 minutes.
Partially scripted, partially improvised, entirely hilarious.
Strong language and adult content. Recommended for age 16 and up.
On the Nextstage:
Wednesday May 21st 7:30 PM
Thursday May 22nd 7:30 PM
Friday May 23rd 7:30 PM and 10:30 PM
Saturday May 24th 7:30 PM and 10:30 PM
THE STORY: In today’s frenzied and fast-paced world, who has time to lounge about the theatre basking in the glow of the most significant dramatic works of our time? Well, 11,400 Season Subscribers…but if you’re not among that group, or if you were out of town and missed your favorite play this season, the brutally efficient cast of Geva Comedy Improv has condensed, reduced, truncated, abbreviated and distilled 7 Mainstage productions and 14 Rochester TheatreFest productions into one single 90 minute performance.
From the Mainstage:
Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure
A Christmas Carol
The Piano Lesson
Pride and Prejudice
From the Nextstage:
Tea at Five... PUSH Physical Theatre
The Fantasticks... Frozen
I Am My Own Wife... Rapunzel
Smokey Joe’s Café... Very Truly Yours, Gilbert and Sullivan
Plaid Tidings... Side Show
All My Sons... May God Strike Me Dead...
Talking Heads... Dames at Sea
THE EXPERIENCE: A sharply witty theatrical tour-de-force that will leave you dizzy with excitement.
THE BUZZ: Critics are raving “This has the potential for greatness, it could also be a spectacular trainwreck…Live action theatrical cliff notes for the hurried patron of the arts…theater-goers will never sit through a full length performance again!”
THE FINE PRINT: Strong language and adult content. Recommended for age 16 and up.
