Impro Theatre - Home of Los Angeles Theatresports since 1988 » History

www.improtheatre.com [cached]

Forrest Brakeman, Ellen Idelson and Dan O'Connor founded Los Angeles Theatresports in 1988.

Forrest Brakeman was a comedian and member of the long running "Faultline" improv and sketch comedy group, which included Greg Proops and Micheal McShane of "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"
In 1988 Brakeman, Idelson and O'Connor found themselves in Los Angeles wanting to do something different.
Idelson and O'Connor had just come from Bay Area Theatresports, although Idelson took the circuitous route of going to the American Repertory Theatre at Harvard first before finally deciding to come to back to her native Los Angeles, and Brakeman had just finished directing a number of LA improv groups.
The company began exploring narrative in various styles and genres with Forrest Brakeman's format called "Triple Play" in 1990.
