franco2Featuring letters to or from famous people*

Ah, the lost art of writing letters, remember those? Back before text messages and email and snapchat, there were letters–carefully crafted messages, sealed in an envelope, and delivered by hand by the post office. We dig through archives of letters, usually, not always, to or from famous people. The letters can be sad or funny, angry or joyous. We read selections from our favorites each week, and then deconstruct them and use the pieces to create original comedy on the spot.

We are happy to announce that because of our successful run this fall we are remounting this show in January.
