What a great story! And yes, I’m similarly amazed by the skill that improv requires. The performers learn to make offers to one another to give the other performers something to build on, but the performers are also taught to, in Cathy’s words, “create with crap.” It’s such a beautiful skill, and applicable to so many situations we find ourselves in. Having trouble making small talk? Improv can help! Not sure how to have difficult conversations with your family or colleagues or spouse, improv can help you build those muscles too! I’m so glad to hear this story, and I’ll surely share it with Cathy. :heart:
