“These four are masters of their craft and synonymous with narrative improv. If this is the direction you want to play, this is an absolute must. If you don’t, but you want to stretch out your story muscles, this is still a must.” -Student feedback
“It’s a testament to their commitment to the craft and and their comfort on stage that they managed to sustain a rapt audience through laugh-free periods. You know, like good theater tends to do.” -The Austinist.com
“★★★★★ Some of the most enjoyable long-form improv I’ve seen, ever. It was dark, hilarious and all set at the perfect pace. I love slow-burning stories that take their time to unravel, and this did exactly that. “- London Improv (via the Edinburgh Fringe Festival)
“Hi, I’m Amy Heckerling. That was a really good show, I enjoyed it.“
-Amy Heckerling, director of Clueless, Johnny Dangerously, and Fast Times at Ridgemont High
