The ALL 90s Edition of BLACKBOX PLAYLIST! 

Come out on Friday, September 7th, to the Peoples Improv Theater to see our newest edition of BLACKBOX PLAYLIST! 

We picked 8 of our favorite 90s songs, and we've handed those songs off to 8 playwrights. They are writing short plays based on those songs (that also take place in the 90s), which will be performed by 16 actors who will NOT meet beforehand. The first time they meet their scene partner will be onstage in front of the audience - right before the lights go down and their play begins!
