Cream of Improv Soup



Cream of Improv Soup stars two of improv company Sorry Not Sorry’s sub-groups, The Coven and Meanwhile in YEG. The Coven is a group of witches that I think offered to cast a spell on someone or for someone; a probably drunk audience member suggested an unfaithful boyfriend. This somehow got translated into a theme of toads (something to do with venereal disease) and while everyone involved seemed charming, it didn’t quite get to the level of even other improv by this company. The second, Meanwhile in YEG, purported to give glimpses of Edmonton that transpired while we were in the theatre. It was a tepid foray into Edmontonia—the Talus Balls make an appearance, but without any particularly biting remarks about public art. Similarly, two strangers on a bus have an uncomfortable exchange, then become friends, and the only grist is that ETS should have better payment options. There’s better improv out there, folks, even by these very same actors. Reviewed by Jay Smith.
