HUGE IMPROV THEATER
May 10, 2012

HUGE is my very favorite place to be in the Twin Cities. I love theater and when it comes to improv theater it just doesn't get any better than HUGE. They have some of the most talented people I have ever seen on their stage. It's different every time, but there IS one constant: It is always amazing. Also, it's super cheap - 5 or 10 bucks for a night of perfect entertainment - it doesn't get much better than that!

I've brought a variety of people with me, from friends from all over to my parents and my sister's Bachelorette Party and each and every time it was a success. I have yet to bring someone who afterwards says they did not enjoy it.

These guys are just doing such a wonderfully amazing job both on and off-stage. The atmosphere is welcoming, heartfelt and friendly. The volunteers who work there are open for conversation and make everything to make everyone feel appreciated and at home. And once you know that they are volunteers who do not get paid a cent, your amazement just grows. And on stage I have seen the widest variety of shows, from musical improv to solo to Film Noir-inspired and political shows, from the all stars at Show X to the Newbies at Space Jam. It's different every time and I never ceased to discover new nuances.

The tips ask for criticism too, but I have none. I'm just proud of the people that run HUGE and I will always keep coming back and support them because they have enriched my life with so many wonderful experiences.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the joy I get simply from walking into the building, in giddy anticipation of what might happen that night.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

start paying the volunteers. But such is the plan already, once the funds are available.
