Ok, so it’s not Once More With Feeling, but my favorite public chaos group Improv Everywhere recently staged a musical in the foodcourt of a Los Angeles mall. While the customers were certainly in the dark, the mall staff was not – as IE managed to coordinate with wireless mics and the mall’s PA system.
I’ve been meaning to write about Improv Everywhere for quite some time now, so I guess there is no better time than the present.
Improv Everywhere is, at its core, about having fun. Weâ€™re big believers in â€œorganized funâ€. In the process we bring excitement to otherwise unexciting locales and give strangers a story they can tell for the rest of their lives. Weâ€™re out to prove that a prank doesnâ€™t have to involve humiliation or embarrassment; it can simply be about making someone laugh, smile, or stop to notice the world around them.
