October 2011: Entertaining Possibilities: A Theatrical Touch: THEY improv

Watch out. That person to your left at the dinner table may be a murderer.
At least he or she might be if you hire the performers from THEY improv for your next party.
The Florida-based organization has actors on call in markets across the country, including a lively bunch available for parties in Westchester and Fairfield.
Todd Rice, a transplanted New Yorker (sic) and the organization's director, has personally done murder mysteries in Westchester homes along with improv comedy at private events.
Each event, he says, is custom-designed.
"Nobody goes online, looks at a page and says, 'I want to order a No. 12 with mustard.'"
THEY improv might help conjure up a mob-themed mystery dinner or an evening that follows the game of "Clue" or "This is Your Life." Guests could be asked to play simulated game shows from "Family Fued" to "Match Game" or participate in a night of improvisational comedy Rice likens to the television show "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"
There is one thing in common, Rice says.
"People are looking for something different. They have little tolerance for doing the same thing over and over again."
And by nature, a night of improvisation, no matter what direction it takes, is going to be one of a kind.
"We couldn't repeat what we did if we tried."
Despite that, the goal is always the same.
"I want people smiling at the end of the evening."
