Mansical Recommended The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Fridays. Continues through Aug. 28 2015

Improv has always been a sausage fest; the all-male musical improv group Mansical have turned necessity into a virtue, showing that a bunch of talented, funny guys can do without the usual lame sexist stereotypes. The six-man troupe also does a good job avoiding the pitfalls that undermine less seasoned improvisers: they listen to each other and play well together, none of them assuming the alpha role or otherwise controlling the scenes. The result the night I attended was an always charming, frequently inspired, sometimes laugh-out-loud-funny show of improvised scenes and songs that left me wishing this hour-long entertainment were longer. —Jack Helbig
