Pajama Party: Next 3 Weekends

Mikaela re-posts, courtesy Q-staff:

The Boys are Back. Thing 1. Thing 2. Troublemakers all: Your favorite and mine.

The one... (okay two) ... the only...

The Pajama Men
Improv at its finest
Holy smokes! The Pajama Men (known to their mothers as Shenoah Allen and Mark Chavez) are back in Albuquerque for three short weeks to bring a completely improvised show to Q-staff Theatre: IMPROVVISO! The thrilling tight rope of split second character switches and multiple story lines! Woven together by the critically acclaimed Pajama Men as they invite you to engage in some of the most unusual and hilarious physical comedy ever staged. Over the past seven years Allen and Chavez have extensively toured North America and Europe, and recently were presented by Second City at Chicago’s famed Steppenwolf Theatre, marking the first collaboration between the two venerable organizations. Now’s your chance to see them do it all, on the spot, right in front of your eyes; comedy magic, only without all the ta-da’s!
But wait, there’s more! The boys will hold a workshop open to anyone who wants to learn about devising comedy, improvisation, and the Pajama Man process of creating a show. Come see what they’ve been teaching at Second City without buying the plane ticket to Chicago!
“Whip-smart and able to turn on the thinnest of dimes, Allen and Chavez are improvisers’ improvisers. Actors’ actors. Comedians’ comedians.”
- Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
“Watching Shenoah Allen and Mark Chavez perform (in their PJs) is like watching your weirdest dreams melting together and bubbling on stage. Half the time, even they don't seem to know what's going to happen next….we can confidently guarantee this will be one of the funniest things you'll ever see. Queues for tickets will be huge.” - Alan Hindle, The Globe and Mail
