Tired of ninety-minute meetings where nothing seems to get done? Exhausted by the three-hour slog of most movies nowadays? Already bored of reading this paragraph? Wait, come back! It'll just be a few more minutes. This Friday, March 8, at 10 pm, Riot Theater Company keeps it short and sweet with the return of our experimental theater experience RIOT X, taking the stage for three nights this spring.
Showcasing 30 original 2-minute plays written for and by the Riot X ensemble, this show is performed in a random order determined in the moment by the audience. Perfect for variety-seekers and people who are looking for something different from theater. At turns funny, dramatic, nostalgic, relevant, irrelevant, abstract, always fresh, and never illusory, Boston has never seen anything like this show!
Plus, keep your eye on this page for an upcoming chat with Riot-Improv and Riot-X double-dipper and first of our Riot Theater "Meet the Mainstage" cast interviews, Emily Duggan!
The clock is ticking! Learn more about Riot X, and buy your tickets now!
The buck doesn't stop here. The following night, Saturday, March 9, at 8 pm, Riot Improv presents: Your Quirky Family! Over 60 minutes of scenes made up on the spot, all of them inspired by you, the audience, and your stories about all your drama with your mama. Read more about our Your Quirky Family long-form improv format, and grab your tickets for the show today!
Our March 9 show will feature Riot Improv mainstage cast members Kayla, Steve, Joe, Eric, Amancio, Stuart, and Kristen.
