Wheel of Austen
April 19, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
As part of its Austen in April programming, the Rockport Public Library is thrilled to announce that Wheel of Austen, a show that was featured at ImprovBoston, will be here on Thursday, April 19! Throughout the performance, audience members will spin the “Wheel of Austen” as the comedy group puts their improvisation talents to work by playing with the traditions of Jane Austen’s beloved novels. Come and enjoy the unexpected and creative twists of humor that these top comedians of Boston are sure to come up with!
Can a young lady tear herself away from her Gothic romance novel to catch the eye of a gentleman suiter? Perhaps. Will there be a marriage proposal? Probably. Smelling salts? One never knows, it’s improv after all.
Directed by John Herman, who has taught and performed improv comedy from New York to Tokyo, Wheel of Austen stars seasoned improvisers Michelle Boncek, Benjamin Scurria, Elyse Schuerman, John Herman, Sumeet Sarin, Lisa Cordner, and Jenna O’Brien.
This is a must-see event.
