Imagine standing onstage in front of an audience and not knowing any of your lines, or even what your story is about. That’s what will happen in a performance from Theatre B. It’s a long-form improv show called “Tim and Jacob are Friends: Scriptless.” It’s a hybrid event, meaning people can watch online anywhere or in person. Joining us are the two cast members, Tim Larson and Jacob Hartje.

Tim & Jacob Are Friends: Scriptless is Theatre B’s own take on Long-Form Improv. Unlike Short-Form Improv, which relies on games and gags, Long-Form Improv requires complex thinking and radical trust. Actors weave a completely original story from audience suggestions. It might be very funny, but it has the potential to be so much more.  More here.
