“I Love Love” is an improvised play exploring that most infuriating and intoxicating emotion. This show explores not just the funny side of love and relationships, but also the parts that can make us angry, comforted or heartbroken.

Act 2: Mulligan feat. Soundscape

Mulligan lets the audience snuggle into their seats before taking them on a wild roller-coaster ride.

No fear to be found here- these improvisers are fiery, sharp and witty af!

Act 1: Three Seagulls: An Improvised Anton Chekhov Play

Improvisers infamously can’t resist pulling out a gun. But can they hold off using it until Act 3? Find out in The Three Seagulls, an improvised Chekhovian play bringing you the best of Russian bleakness.

Beauty Love Truth combines live music and heartfelt improv. Performing scenes inspired by original songs, the improvisers bring new meaning to the lyrics through tales of heartbreak, happiness and hope. This format was created by Louie Pearlman (New York City).

Nico is a dynamically gifted singer who has been part of Canada’s professional music scene for over twenty years. The former lead-singer for Calgary’s critically acclaimed “Dino Martini’s”, Nico has emerged as a ukulele-playing singer-songwriter.
