Anything does go in this fun and constructive development workshop environment led by Gene Santarelli.  Performing artists of all types join together every week to support each other in the creative process.  Artists who sign up have 10 minutes to present a monologue, try out a solo piece, bring in a script and hear it read by actors in attendance, experiment with new stand up comedy material, or improvise.  All artists in attendance may have the chance to do some cold reading or to provide valuable insight to those who present.
