My group that headed down to take in Tall Tales: The Quest Is Up to You! was comprised of two adults and two teenagers. I can tell you that Tall Tales: The Quest Is Up to You! was immensely enjoyed by all in my group.
You know when you are enjoying something so much that time flies…well, that was exactly what the performance was like for all in our group. Intermission happened and we all looked at each other surprised. It literally felt like the performance had just started. When the show was over, we all wanted more.
I have to say that all the performers were amazing but as with any show, one really stood out to us all.
The performer front and center in the image above was amazing. I wish that I remembered her name. Her performance was spectacular. Her ability to use her facial expressions and body movements to enhance everything she did during the performance was outstanding.
All the cast members did an amazing job in the performance. Not a beat was missed to ensure maximum hilarity.
I have always loved improv, not to perform of course 🙂 but certainly to watch and there is no better place to check out an improv show than at The Improv Centre down on Granville Island. Go for the shopping, fuel up with dinner, and stay for the improv show. You won’t regret it.
