Sir Alfred Hitchcock is arguably one of the most popular and widely respected filmmakers in the history of cinema. Over the course of 53 films and more than half a century, Hitchcock commanded the medium like few directors before or after. Pioneering many techniques, styles and themes that were at one time revolutionary, and now in our time the standard, he explored suspense and the human dynamic in exciting and innovative ways.
Over the course of the last several months, ten improvisers have studied, analyzed and explored the work of this cinematic legend. Marrying the knowledge and experience they've gained with the tools of improvisational theater, these actors will navigate the scenarios, archetypes, and tropes that are definitive of Hitchcock's films.
During a limited run of eight performances, suspense, intrigue and mystery will take center stage as the players spontaneously create worlds of tension filled with misfortunate heroes, troubled blondes, charismatic villains and fractured identities. A few simple audience suggestions set the stage for this Hitchcockian tribute wrought with fears, obsessions, anxieties and laughter.
