Did we mention that we are opening for them?
AAAaaaaaaaaaa!!!!! So excited.

Honored to have most of Parallelogramophonograph (missed you Valerie!) to read and discuss their book "Do It Now." This book has such AMAZING stuff in it and IN THIS READING they literally give out the gold. They give out the pearls. They discuss "Spine of the Story."

This is a fantastic watch. I highly recommend it.

Our Story

Since their premier in November of 2005, Parallelogramophonograph has been more than just any improv troupe. Fiercely dedicated to the craft and art of improvised theatre, PGraph has held a weekly show non-stop for almost 12 years. Early on in their time together Kaci Beeler, Kareem Badr, Roy Janik, and Valerie Ward knew they wanted to do something different onstage. Intrigued by the challenge of telling fantastic fully-improvised stories together as an ensemble, PGraph spent years developing original formats and studying the art of theatre, improv, and storytelling.

They’ve toured the country and the world performing and teaching their unique brand of improv with appearances in over 50 cities in the US, Canada, Australia, Europe, and the UK.

When not on tour, they perform every Thursday at 8 pm at The Hideout Theatre in Downtown Austin, TX. http://www.hideouttheatre.com/shows/PGraphPresents
