Review: Impromtu

Impromptu.Impromptu. by Tad Mosel

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I directed this one-act play in high school, and thought I would revisit it today. It is a short read about 4 actors that are taken out of their comfort zone. Being that I have undergraduate degrees in both, Musical Theatre and Psychology, I have always found this play to be fascinating. Actors always want to be “in character” but in this situation they are forced to play themselves through the improvisation of a play. Typecasting runs rampant in this story, until the actors slowly turn about. All in all, they learn much about themselves and each other in only 27 pages.
