WePolak / Trapped in a Musical

March 26, 2022 @ 5:00 PM


Improv; Warsaw, Poland

It took a pandemic to bring Warsaw born Polak Monika Ozdarska and Chicago born Polak Jeff Michalski into the same virtual ZOOM room. Monika interviewed Jeff for her improv podcast The Art of Yes. Inspired by each other’s stories they decided to create WePolak. Their adventure has started virtually and now you’ll be able to see their first meeting on the real stage (or NON VIRTUAL STAGE), real festival, real space and see their real in person engagement! What comes out of it? Come and see the Chicago improv legend playing with European improviser and check what’s funny in this InterContinental exchange!

WePolak long-form show represents an artful montage of playful, wise exploration of relationships sparkled with existential philosophy, performed with creative intimacy characteristic of improv masters. An additional, unique element of the WePolak initiative is a demonstration of the inclusive power of improv as it effectively applies across the language and cultural differences. (By Wiesław Rocki)

Trapped in a Musical

Trapped in a Musical

Welcome to our little town. It’s a mostly ordinary town, filled with mostly ordinary people. But every so often, one of our townspeople finds themselves TRAPPED IN A MUSICAL! They never know when it’s coming, because it’s up to YOU, our audience. Every performance you’ll pick the main character, you’ll give us the plot points, the finer details, and on the spot we’ll create a 40-minute musical about this seemingly ordinary townsperson. They’ll only be as ordinary as you make them, but we guarantee you’ll laugh as we improvise songs, dances and mayhem. So welcome to our little town – stay a while.

Created and performed by ensemble members of ComedySportz Chicago.
Rated PG-13

Directed By: Heather Scholl
