Dearly Beloved performs The Wake, an improvisational form developed by Alex Marino and originally performed by the Necropolitans many years ago. From the invocation of a name pulled from the obituary pages, Dearly Beloved gives the recently deceased their final chance to have their story told on stage through a series of improvised scenes. With scenes that vary from the side splitting hilarious to the gut-wrenchingly tragic, Dearly Beloved invites you to celebrate the life and death of a complete stranger.

They have two shows in September.  One of which is tomorrow (Tuesday) night at 7:00pm.

“Enchanting”
—L Magazine

“…Comedic, dramatic, and jazz improv so surreally compelling that by the end, you leave wishing you could see what they come up with next.”
—Daniel Kelly, www.nytheatre.com

“What differentiates this show from any other I’ve seen is the stunning collaboration between the actors and a live jazz trio onstage. The strength of FACE is their extraordinary ability to tune into each other, thereby keeping the audience enthralled by both the unique concept of the show and its execution.”
—Katherine Heller, www.newyorkcool.com

“…the cast is clearly having fun, and the pace never lags for long…FACE is a breezy, amusing diversion.”
—Vanessa Anderson, Time Out New York

FACE is improv at its most beautiful.”
—Katherine Heller, www.newyorkcool.com

FACE Improv’s performance at the Galapagos Art Space screamed of talent overload, with music, laughter and spontaneity pouring out the door of the tiny space…as the musicians embellished each minute of the show with their equally theatrical and relevant jazz.”
—Jennifer Pelly, The Fordham Observer
