The improv troupe THE INTERNET DISAGREES is turning ONE YEAR OLD and we're celebrating with two of our favorite people: Dave Herman and RL Stine!
R.L. Stine is coming to let some of your favorite weirdos explore the mind that brought you Goosebumps, Fear Street, and so much more!
After a brief interview with our favorite non-creepy human being Dave Herman (and the uncomfortable Leah Evans), R.L. Stine himself will read short passages from his own books to inspire two whole improv sets featuring The Internet Disagrees.
**This show isn't for the kiddos. We like to get weird. Get a babysitter.
When three witches tell Macbeth that he is destined to occupy the throne of Scotland, he and his wife choose to become the instruments of their fate and to kill the first man standing in their path, the virtuous King Duncan. But to maintain his position, Macbeth must keep on killing – first Banquo, his old comrade-in-arms; then, as the atmosphere of guilt and paranoia thickens, anyone who seems to threaten his tyrant's crown.
Hermia loves Lysander and Helena loves Demetrius – but Demetrius is supposed to be marrying Hermia… When the Duke of Athens tries to enforce the marriage, the lovers take refuge in the woods and wander into the midst of a dispute between the king and queen of the fairies.
Shakespeare put some of his most dazzling dramatic poetry at the service of this teasing, glittering, hilarious and amazingly inventive play, whose seriousness is only fleetingly glimpsed beneath its dreamlike surface.
Shakespeare's most outrageous comedy, The Taming of the Shrew introduces one of theatre's great screwball double-acts, a couple hell-bent on confusing and outwitting each other right up to the play's equivocal and controversial conclusion.
Prospero, Duke of Milan, usurped and exiled by his own brother, holds sway over an enchanted island. He is comforted by his daughter Miranda and served by his spirit Ariel and the deformed slave Caliban. When Prospero raises a storm to wreck this perfidious brother and his confederates on the island, his long contemplated revenge at last seems within reach.
Imbued with a spirit of magic and the supernatural, The Tempest is Shakespeare's late great masterpiece of forgiveness, generosity and enlightenment.
A moving mosaic of what it means to be endowed with "Great Expectations," That Poor Dream is set on a train traveling from New York City to Fairfield, CT, uniting worlds divided by geography, privilege, and time. Inspired by Charles Dickens's classic novel about coming of age in a profoundly class-conscious society, the work draws on the company's own complex relationship to class identity and economic disparity in American society, The Assembly's newest creation explores how class defines and divides us, and how our shared humanity might bring us closer together.
Filled with a cast of unforgettable characters, Twelfth Night is a moving comedy of loss and misplaced love and includes some of the most exquisite songs Shakespeare ever wrote.
The all-male Original Practices production, exploring clothing, music, dance and settings possible in the Globe around 1601, stars award-winning Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry. Twelfth Night's sell-out performances led to a hit run in London's West End.
