Cassandra's Gift

By Jan Levine Thal

Directed by Jan Levine Thal

Dystopian comedy-drama. A hundred years from now, unforeseen consequences of social policy cause population growth that forces ordinary people into cramped apartments full of strangers. A band of brave scientists and artists battle dwindling resources to cure a virus that could wipe out the planet. And yet there are laughs.

Atlas Improv Presents: The Cut

On Saturday, October 19, for the sixth time in the history of the world, Atlas Improv Co.'s one-of-a-kind reality show returned to Madison.

Over six weeks, eight amateur improvisers face off to become Atlas Improv Co.'s newest full-time member. Each week these competitors will be challenged to perform unknown tasks in front of the audience and our unforgiving panel of judges. They will invent new games in front of the audience's very eyes, play games they've never seen played, and plead for mercy from friend and foe. Each week, audience and panel alike will vote to send one of them home.

Be an audience member at The Cut and cast your vote for who you believe should be the next member of Atlas Improv Co. 

But mark your calendars now, this show WILL SELL OUT. 

Reservations will not be accepted for The Cut. Tickets can be purchased over the phone by calling 608-259-9999 or bought the day of the show at 609 E. Washington when the box office opens at 7pm. All credit card purchases made over the phone will include a $2 service fee.

Be a part of Atlas Improv Co. history this October. Find out who will succeed, who will fail, and who will survive The Cut.
