“World’s Fair” at Jet City Improv

In 2003 Erik Larson published “The Devil in the White City…” a best seller about the building of the Chicago World’s Columbian Exposition in 1893 and the evil machinations of Mr. H.H. Holmes. Oh how easy it was for this suave sociopath to entice and murder any number of innocent young women who came to Chicago seeking thrills and wound up as corpses.

Now Jet City Improv does its take on these nefarious goings on. With a little help from the audience who offer story details the actors create a different show every night. The quick-witted cast, well costumed for the period, adapt the dialog to audience suggestions and change roles with each performance. Every night is a unique show.

It’s no “Second City” but it is good fun, crafted under the direction of Randy Miller and Brandon Jepson.

Thursdays and Fridays through June 21 at 5510 University Way NE, Seattle; (206 352-8291 or www.jetcityimprov.com/worldsfair)
