About this show

Chameleons is a full-length play developed from character-based improvisation. It's one of Freestyle's most original brainstorms in the ongoing evolution of long-form improvisational theater. Each of four actors prepares by being interviewed by the audience, instantly building a character based on the crowd's input. This leads to a 45-minute play, which is improvised in the second act using as many of the characters as possible. The "leap" into character is probably the most beguiling aspect of the actor's craft. The ingenuity of this play is that it culminates in an entire play based on character and relationship. Structure is provided by an offstage improviser who serves as a conduit between the audience and the actors.
