When: Sundays. Continues through May 29 2016

Under the Gun Theater's improv setup gives Disney characters the Bravo reality-show treatment—or at least half the ensemble does. With the straightforward audience suggestion "political campaign," it wasn't clear what the rest were going for opening night. Real Housewives parody jokes (Cinderella owns LA's Pump restaurant) and princess and villain references are enough for each character to come up with individual riffs. But when a through line is never established, rake-effect jokes offer diminishing returns. And while the company makes it clear that the show is intended for adults, there's something to be said for reading the room—with a young child in the front row, the Big Bad Wolf's harping about being horny was more than a little cringe worthy. —Dan Jakes
