Off The Record: An Improvised Music Documentary

pauli reese


Categories: Comedy & Improv

Dates: September 21, 2023 - September 24, 2023

Run Time: 60 mins

Venue: Theatre Exile



OTR is an improvised musical documentary — THIS IS SPINAL TAP meets BEHIND THE MUSIC. You’ll experience a band’s rise to super stardom and their inevitable fall into obscurity. (And maybe, a little redemption.) Most impressively: you’ll hear their number-one singles, deep cuts, and B-sides; all played LIVE, all improvised, every show!


Crossroads Comedy Theater is a roaming home for comedy shows, classes, and podcasts. Whether you like to sit back and watch improv, sketch comedy, stand-up, storytelling, or any other type of comedy or are interested in learning how to do those things- they got your back!
