One Great Winnipeg

Local improvisers and noteworthy Winnipegger’s come together to celebrate/commiserate the ‘Peg. Funny, tragic, and honestly a really nice time of year to head downtown.

  1. One Great Winnipeg takes the audience on an hour long adventure of both the positives and negatives of living in Winnipeg, and, most importantly, why we choose to live in this imperfect city. With a different Winnipegger joining the cast each show to share their own stories of Winnipeg, it guarantees a unique experience each time. The Probable Cast takes these stories as inspiration for what they can create on stage.
    Ben Sellick improvises on the keyboard to correspond with the scene unfolding on stage. Hearing the music adds to the enjoyment of the show. With the scenes running smoothly, it’s hard to believe the scenes are made up on the spot and not scripted. You’re reassured, however, of the improvisation whenever an improviser cracks up or has troubles finding the next thing to say.
    The humour used in the show keeps audience members laughing throughout and never allows a dull moment. Members of the audience are doubled over with laughter for much of the hour and sit in wonder, never knowing what direction it will take.
    All I can say is One Great Winnipeg is one great show! 5/5 stars.

  3. This is my first 5 star review of the year (out of 7 plays, if you must know). I was very pleasantly surprised to find myself at a show led by the endlessly delightful Caity Curtis and her dapper partner (in crime?) Stephen Sim. This show features a different “noteworthy Winnipegger” each night, along with guest improv artists. Our guest was the lovely Alyson Shane, Vote Open advocate and all-around charmer. Tomorrow’s guest, FYI, is Kevin McDonald. Check it out! You could even seen it twice! Or thrice!
