    48-Hour Improv Marathon

    Yes, The Hideout Theatre's 48-Hour Improv Marathon is back after a four-year hiatus – and, as part of the Hideout's commitment to increasing diversity in improv, this year the core eight improvisers are all members of the BIPOC improv community. Those eight? Adrian Prado, Cass Gutierrez, J.R. Zambrano, Jess von Schramm, Lahari Dunn, Steph Vasquez Fonseca, Tyler Groce, and Stephanie Rae. They'll improvise nonstop for 48 hours, with a new format with fresh performers joining them (almost) every hour. Note: Each hour to attend – to watch these champions soar and then, as time takes its relentless toll, to witness them struggle valiantly against the need for sleep – will set you back $5. Or, highly recommended, you could buy an all-marathon pass for just $48 and catch their action whenever you choose.
    Straight through from Fri., May 19, 5pm, until Sun., May 21, 5pm. $5 per show ($48, full-fest pass).

    1507 Wilshire
