Spectacle Spectacular: A Fully Improvised Song and Dance Musical 

When: Sundays. Continues through July 31 2016
Price: $20
Improvisers the Glitter Island Gang have teamed up with the J. Lindsay Brown Dance Company for this intermittently enjoyable production, in which a brand-new musical is made up on the spot. On the night I saw the show, an audience suggestion of "gooey" inspired a shaggy tale about a town being taken over by sentient slime. As you might expect from a large cast working without a script or choreography, things got a bit chaotic and, despite the efforts of directors Brown and Neil Figuracion, the two troupes didn't ever fully coalesce; the dancers in particular seemed unsure of what to do with themselves. It fell to the improvisers to try to scrounge up some laughs and make sense of the plot, though they struggled to maintain focus.
