Arts Calendar

Virtual Hideout

So many shows, so many themes, such a freakin' panoply of improv talents at this Hideout that it makes the mind, how you say, boggle. Longtime house troupe Parallelogramophonograph sets the performance bar high AF, but damned if their everchanging roster of guests doesn't sometimes knock it right off. The Hideout's got a full weekly schedule of entertainments for you online, and – yes! – in-person improv classes have returned! Check that website, STAT.
