About the Show

"One of the most exciting improv shows in New York City?. It's the perfect show for comedy and theater fans alike." ?Elise Czajkowski, comedy journalist for the New York Times, on The Cast

Join some of the Magnet's most beloved character improvisers and instructors as they bring you behind the curtain of a fully-improvised play. See the performers and the drama move from on-stage to backstage in a different genre each week. Will the play?s star-crossed lovers be off-stage enemies? Will the detective actually die during a murder mystery, leaving the cast without a clue? Will the Shakespearean cutpurse get a little too Method? All of this?AND MORE?might happen! Come for the fake play. Stay for the fake players.

The Cast has been featured in the New York Times' theater section and Time Out New York's print edition. The Cast is up every Saturday at the Magnet Theater and has had the pleasure of performing at the Baltimore Improv Festival, the Hartford Improv Fest, and the Vancouver International Improv Festival (October 2016).
