The N Crowd
Every Friday night in Philadelphia since 2005, The N Crowd has taken your suggestions and played improv games with a rotating cast of hilarious performers. The N Crowd was called “Philadelphia’s premiere improv troupe” by Philadelphia Style Magazine. After more than 10 years and 600 shows, The N Crowd is still going strong with sold-out shows every week. Learn more at phillyncrowd.com.
Motel rooms are gross. No one finds comfort in the fact that hundreds of strangers have slept in that bed before them. No one is excited to consider the history that those walls have seen. No one wants to consider all of the events that took place in a cheap room off of Highway Whatever. Until now. In Motel, the audience is lucky enough to see the stories of the people who stayed in that motel room before them. In this Motel, the secrets of the past are aired for your viewing pleasure.
Originally conceived by JStar of the Basement Theater in Atlanta
