Press for Lauren Rose Lewis: Twilight Zone UnScripted

“Standouts include Lauren Rose Lewis, whose innocence, sensitivity and imagination throughout the evening made this critic take notice.”

"On opening night, Dan O’Connor and Lauren Rose Lewis created a newly wedded couple whose debate over the historical significance of a family heirloom—a pocket watch—gave an often emotion-packed glimpse into the struggles of a young marriage. The moments of silence they embraced, aided by sound designer Allen Simpson’s array of musical underscoring and Leigh Allen’s lighting design improvised from the booth by Michael Becker and Jo McGinley, were priceless. It was a testament to the importance of story over punch lines and over the tendency to view improvisation as merely topping the previous line."
Dink O’Neal, September 9, 2013

“Solid Dan O’Connor brings a rich authenticity and likability to his characters. He possesses nice chemistry and timing with Lauren Rose Lewis, who possesses a charming vulnerability."

“But everyone in my cast produced standout work… Lauren Rose Lewis, in a glance, so fully invested a character with venom that I feared for the safety of her fellow cast members.”

FILM NOIR UnScripted

 

 

Once again, Impro Theatre lights up the stage at North Coast Rep; this time with the dark, mysterious, and seedy world of Film Noir.  

For tickets and info, visit North Coast Repertory.

 

The dark and seedy underbelly of Los Angeles in the ‘40’s and ‘50’s is the setting for L.A. Noir UnScripted. Using such authors as Raymond Chandler and James M. Cain as inspiration, the ensemble embodies private dicks, femme fatales and a cadre of colorful characters. From the back alleys of Downtown to the manicured lawns of Beverly Hills, Impro Theatre delivers hard hitting, completely improvised tales of seduction and murder.

“These angels with dirty faces play well with pulp.”
-Los Angeles Times

“A hysterical riot full of passionate intentions, mischievous glances and death…gets you hooked and wanting to come back for more.”
-LA Weekly

Additional Press reviews for Jane Austen UnScripted


"If you want an evening of hilarity without the use of any four letter words or gestures of vulgarity...you have to see "Jane Austen UnScripted!"  This troupe of improv actors has been at this for years, taking one simple suggestion from the audience, like "purple ribbon," and creating a 90-minute play with all the nuances of Austen's England but completely original and clever.  There's even music and dancing!"  

-Hettie Lynne Hurtes (KPCC)
