"The quartet maintain a charismatic warmth throughout [their shows] as well as a sharp wit and excellent understanding of how to hold their audience." -The List UK

Fresh from their European debut, Parallelogramophonograph presents to you something wholly inspired by 28 straight days of eating, sleeping, drinking, and performing together at the all-consuming extravagance of experimental theatre and comedy that is the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland.

Parallelogramophonograph has been performing together for 6 years and over 380 shows. They specialize in improvising full-length plays and have toured nationally and internationally with their original formats. Renowned for their theatricality, playfulness, and hive-mind like ensemble, their goal with every show is to push both themselves and the art of improvisation to new and dizzying heights while taking the audience along for a joyous ride.

The members of PGraph regularly teach and direct shows at The Hideout Theatre in Austin, Texas.

Cast:Suzi Barrett, Laura Davis, Madeline Walter, Ben Greene


Los Angeles

Pretzels is an all-out, free-form improvised romp! Four of LA's finest improvisers throw "form" out the window as they explore characters and ideas with quick edits and whimsical group support.

Pretzels is comprised of an eclectic combination of teachers and performers from LA's best improv theaters: Laura Davis (The Second City, ioWest), Suzi Barrett (ioWest, UCB), Madeline Walter (UCB), and Ben Greene (UCB) have almost thirty years of combined improv experience under their belts, but have only recently joined forces as Pretzels! They weave together the slower, more character-based style of iO, and the quicker, sketchier style of UCB. This improv hybrid will satisfy long-form enthusiasts and laymen alike-- and boasts great gas mileage.
