Review: Improspection (Fringe 2011)

Reviewed by Émilie Charlebois

This all female bilingual improv group definitely has potential but it will be a while before they hit their stride. Improv is often, if not always a gamble: when it comes together it can be magical and when it goes nowhere it’s just awkward for everyone.  Although it was great to have Dan Jeannotte from Uncalled For as a special guest because his talent supported the other players, his presence also pointed out Improspection’s weaknesses rather then complimenting their strengths. The scenes created were all different and interesting, but the characters played within them lacked some diversity. Jeannotte’s presence should have featured within the improv group’s dynamic, not carry the show. The show was light and these women have a great energy about them and are obviously funny, but I can’t help but feel that they need a little practice. Then again, who is ever really “on” at 3pm on a Saturday?
