A Tale of Two Genres is an improvised musical in the style of the audience's choice—as if written by Charles Dickens. Show runs November 18, 2010 to December 22, 2010. Thursdays & Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 3pm & 8pm. Special 8pm weekday shows Dec. 20-22.
The audience supplies the genre: it could be a post-apocalyptic drama, a western on the American prairie, a Tarantino heist story, or whatever else strikes their fancy. The Un-Scripted Theater Company uses that genre to improvise a full-length musical, as filtered through an absurd, complex, Victorian world, with quirky characters and sly narration that Dickens himself might have created.
