It's all right here at the CT – and at Fallout – and even Spider House. Shitfaced Shakespeare! Sadie Hawkins Day! Latino Comedy Project! The Back Pack! Girls with Brown Hair! So-much-more!

    It's … Hideoutrageous!

    There's a stage upstairs, there's a stage downstairs, there's coffee all over the place and all sorts of shows and classes here. This Thursday brings you a Threefer of improv. Friday warns Don't Interrupt Me!, and follows with the Big Bash, TheatreDome, and the bilingual improvised telenovela of ¡ESCANDALO!. Then, hold on to your matmos and wubfur jacket, citizen, because, after Maestro RAW on Saturday, it's time to meet that Sexy Future Space Lady. And then? Why, it's the can't-miss competitive improv donnybrook of Maestro! See website for more.
