Sometimes life gets in the way. 2014 Festival favorite PLF (Party Like Fuck) from Atlanta's Village Theatre won't be able to make it this year due to multiple team members shooting films this coming weekend. Of course, when we found out we were super bummed and but super happy for them at the same time. If you haven't met Chris Clabo and company, we highly suggest you stop by The Village next time you're in Atlanta.
This gave us an idea...And that idea didn't pan out.
Then we talked to Ricky Wayne from American Stage's mega-duo Hawk & Wanye who suggested we put together a Bay area collaborative team.
So that's what we did. Filling the PLF slot Friday at 830p will be the first all-theater Tampa Bay team Bay to Bay. Featuring Nicholas Riggs (Post Dinner Conversation Inc in Tampa), Patrick McInnis (American Stage/The Third Thought in St. Petersburg), Darryl Knapp (Dear Aunt Gertrude/Florida Studio Theater in Tampa/Sarasota) and Will Luera (Florida Studio Theater in Sarasota), Bay to Bay will be the first team in Tampa Bay history that brings veteran players together from all major improv institutions of the 3 major Bay area cities for a public long form show.
One small step for improv, one giant leap for Tampa Bay. Another first for TIF2015
