Missed Connections/Moniker - Theatre Momentum presents an evening of three original long-form improvisations directed by three veteran improvisation directors. I am in Moniker and Missed Connections.
MONIKER, directed by James Honey, explores the power of nicknames, showing one person with two separate nicknames diverge on a stage, shaping parallel but very different outcomes.
MYTH, directed by improv veteran Jason Chin, explores the social effects of a single event as its mythology is both created and followed.
MISSED CONNECTIONS, directed by The Playground’s Cholley Kuhaneck, uses actual Craigslist personal ads to take the one night encounters and show these lonely lovers connect or pass in the night.
"Theatre Momentum strives to create improv with a theatrical bent," commented Executive Producer Tony Rielage. "We hope, with these shows, to explore a touch of psychology, philosophy, and humanity, while being solidly entertaining."
