The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. The Grand Budapest Hotel. The Royal Tenenbaums. Accidental Wes Anderson on Reddit. You know him, you love him, and so do we.
Directed by Katy Nuttman, Yes Anderson is an improvised journey of humanity with a bit of cinematic beauty and eccentricity folded in.
Expect coming of age stories, family dramas, and big personalities in peculiar situations.
As inspired by the iconic style of Wes Anderson, characters will build a beautiful world then find a way to fit in.
Yes Anderson is the newest edition to Jet City Improv’s line of improvised plays. Unlike most short-form improv formats that involve improvisers switching from game to game and creating brand new scenes every time, Jet City Improv Presents is an ongoing series of longform improv shows that present one or many stories around one cohesive theme. Improv still lies at the heart of each show, and every story is created based on unique suggestions and input every night. So yes, even though Jet City Improv Presents shows have sets and costumes and some thematic rules, the major role of the audience guarantees that no two performances are ever alike.
