THe Improv Jones Show
The Improv Jones Show is presented every Saturday at 8pm at The Rozzie Square Theater.
For twelve years the veteran improvisers of Improv Jones have taken snippets of daily life and turned them into fast-paced, intelligent, heart-warming and hilarious comedic gold.
Improv Jones will be presenting four different shows each month:
Poetry to Scenes
Starting in June, Improv Jones will be collaborating with Lizard Lounge Poetry to present Poetry to Scenes. Where members of the Lizard Lounge Slam Team will present beautiful spoken word performances. Then Improv Jones will create entirely improvised scenes inspired by their words and imagery.
Stories to Scenes
On third Saturdays Improv Jones Boston and MassMouth present Stories to Scenes. Hear real-life tales of humor, tragedy, and more, from renowned storytellers, MassMouth. Plus, see veteran improv comedy group Improv Jones create whole new scenes inspired by the storytellers!
Massmouth is non-profit organization that promotes the timeless art of storytelling in Massachusetts. Since our founding in 2008, Massmouth,inc. has changed the way Greater Boston and surrounding communities tell and listen to stories. Since 2009, Massmouth has held storytelling events and slams in Somerville, Cambridge, Jamaica Plain, Quincy, Worcester and Lowell (just to name a few). Check them out at MassMouth.org
Songs to Scenes
On the last Saturday of every month Improv Jones will team up with local musical artists. They will perform their songs and we will do improv inspired by the images, lyrics, and rhythms of it. This month's musician is Terry Kitchen. Called "one of New England's best songwriters" by The Boston Globe, award-winning contemporary folk singer/songwriter Terry Kitchen writes songs that are portraits of ordinary people and emotions, captured with extraordinary compassion, honesty and humor. His latest CD The Quiet Places has been heard across the U.S and Canada, with its opening track "Enjoy It While It Lasts" reaching #8 on the national Folk-DJ chart. Kitchen's songs have won the Mid-Atlantic and USA Song Contests and been runner-up in the John Lennon Song Contest, and have appeared in numerous films. He has been performing on folk stages since the 1990s, releasing ten CDs, and he was the leader of the groundbreaking '80s band Loose Ties, whose experiences he recounts in his novelNext Big Thing, called "a great debut novel" by The San Francisco Book Review.
