FUGUE is a complex show that captures the elements of a musical fugue through four simultaneous improvised one-act plays that explore similar themes. This is a signature Theatre Momentum production.


FUGUE is 4 one-act plays performed simultaneously on the same stage. It is a unique improvised production that harmoniously weaves 4 one-acts, folding in elements of comedy and drama in equal measure.


FUGUE is Lincoln Chandler, Emily Ember, Ryan Haynes, Kyle Hendrix, Matt Hicks, Dan Jackson, Jillian Markowitz, Damien Mondragon, Alex Pelletier, Yazmin Ramos, Wanaki Shores-Navata, Surena Watts

Directed by Tony Rielage (Artistic Director)

Improv as Theatre classes

Coming Soon!

We put these on hiatus, but they will be coming back shortly after our next show opens, so keep an eye out!


Theatre Momentum's Improv as Theatre class series will teach you the skills to create performances that are believable, seamless, smart, and treat improv as a powerful tool to create instant theatre. To find meaning in every movement and expression. To mine your own personal experience to flesh out your characters. To explore your environment and subtle turns of language and staging that are heavy with meaning. TM also allows performers more stage time to develop characters and dialogue worthy of a scripted play, with actors creating characters they will keep for an entire 45 minute performance.

Classes starting soon. Keep an eye out here for details, or like us on facebook or follow us on twitter for updates!
