An Actors Equity Showcase
The twist: The script has been given to 5 directors. Each director has cast the play with a team of five actor/improvisors and each team has rehearsed the play in their own unique way. At no time during rehearsal will the separate casts communicate with each other. For each performance, one actor/character from each team will perform. Actors are kept isolated from each other and meet one another in character – for the first time on stage.
"It was amazing. We all know that who you cast in a show and what they do has an impact on the story you tell, but for the first time in my life I was watching that theory proven true before my eyes."
