Last Minute Stand-Ins

It’s opening night, it’s nearly show time, the audience is filing into the theatre but… half the cast is missing!  The show must go on, but HOW will it go on?

Last Minute Stand-Ins is the show where hilarious, quick-witted comedy and serious theatre collide.

It pairs some of Amsterdam’s best actors with some of Amsterdam’s funniest improvisers, including the Boom Chicago cast, in a show that presents some of the greatest scenes in theatre and cinema history in a hilarious and unpredictable new light. They’ll be performing scenes from some of the most well-respected plays and films.  But here’s the catch – the actors know the scene, know the lines, and know their character, but the improvisers… KNOW NOTHING!

Will it be Tennessee Williams, Caryl Churchill, August Wilson, Sarah Kane or Harold Pinter? The actors know, but the improvisers are in the dark as they try to make sense of the scenes around them.

What could be a nightmare for the performers is a delight for the audience, as you enjoy sublime performances from the actors and improvisers working at the speed of their intelligence in a show that will be on the funniest and most impressive hours you will ever see.
