Transactors Improv: Love Is All Around
March 3 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$10 - $15
Transactors Improv continues their tradition of an annual Love Show with Love Is All Around. This year’s edition focuses on all sorts of love and not only on the romantic variety.
The two-act show will be made up of several episodes based on audience suggestions about what we love. It could be love of a person, a place, a thing, a memory, or something entirely different. Crispy Bess provides musical accompaniment for the show on the world’s most beloved instrument, the accordion.
“We Transactors love doing shows about love because the emotions and stakes run so high,” says director Greg Hohn. “This year we decided to broaden the scope of the Love Show. In these troubling times we could all benefit from sharing our love.
“And ‘Love Is All Around’ was also the theme song for The Mary Tyler Moore Show, which had a big impact on many of us in the company and also featured alumni of The Second City improv theater. Both Mary Tyler Moore and her most famous character, Mary Richards, were lovely people who excelled at spreading love instead of hostility. So our show is kind of a tribute to Mary although we don’t intend to recreate her show.”
The cast for Love Is All Around includes Anoo Brod, Greg Hohn, Juliet Kaplan, Bart Hubbard, Steve Scott, Steven Warnock, and Jane Allen Wilson. Crispy Bess provides accordion accompaniment and Mike beard handles lights and sound.
