Dramatic improvisers face the same challenges as the comic ones but lack a tool the comedians may value above all others: vocal audience response. Deprived of the titters and belly laughs that can help them gauge which material is landing and which is falling flat, improvisers with serious intentions need to be comfortable with silence. The Theatre Momentum ensemble members aren't. At the show I saw, they frequently abandoned narrative as they attempted to create and interweave three stories, falling back instead on jokes that were often at odds with the beautiful, haunting original music by Rich Logan. --Dan Jakes
