The Hideout Theatre

Up jumps Parallelogramophonograph's Kareem Badr and Roy Janik and Jessica Arjet of Flying Theater Machine, forming a fierce triumvirate of entrepreneurial wherewithal to assume the lease and management, brimming with revamping plans and now – in cahoots with Michael McGill, Andy Crouch, and Kaci Beeler – making the venue an even hotter hotbed of improv hotness.
