This is a past event.

If not for those few seconds of zero gravity at the beginning of each scene, it would've been easy to forget that the fully improvised two-act play I saw was improv at all. Based on a theme (truth) and setting (an office) suggested by guest playwright Lisa Scott (who also consulted with the cast between acts), Almost Atlanta's premiere performance was full of razor-sharp dialogue, nuanced characters, and a compelling plot arc. One almost suspects a setup, but that would be selling short the veteran ensemble, which includes TJ Jagodowski, Noah Gregoropoulos, and Rebecca Sohn. On opening night Gregoropoulos played a wonky law clerk committed to speaking the literal truth—and successfully rescued a premise seemingly killed off by Jim Carrey in Liar Liar. —Keith Griffith
