Hopefully I will be able to distract myself from the choco drought with Agatha Holmes, ImproMafia's latest six-show season of improvised murder mysteries. I've been busily working away on this behind the scenes - but now I get to take to the stage in my 1920s finery. I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to it. The great wonder of impro is the ability to lose yourself in the moment, in the "play" - even while remaining conscious of who you are and what you're doing. It's an interesting dichotomy. I don't ever quite forget that I'm Natalie (particularly when I injure myself, which happens all too often), but for an hour or so, I forget a little bit about the stresses of daily life, and escape into a world of infinite possibility and fun. I suspect other improvisers may feel something similar; however, we all experience the form in our own way.
But this is all a roundabout way of saying YOU SHOULD COME ALONG TO AGATHA HOLMES. If nothing else, you SHOULD see my fabulous blonde wig.
There are six shows - and you can even get a season pass if you'd like to come see all six. However, each night is different and self-contained, so it would be great to see you at one show at least!
