Event Description

Acclaimed improvisor and television writer and actor John Lehr is coming to Arcade with an improv workshop targeted toward one of the most crucial yet surprisingly difficult elements of scenework: establishing location. We’ve all been in a scene where we are standing and talking and we have no idea where we are! In this workshop you'll explore organic, easy methods to dive into the specifics of WHERE we are!

Pairs nicely with Susan Messing's "Fix It Or Make It Worse" workshop! Sign up for both and save $20!
