We got a shout-out!
Be sure to dress in the appropriate house colors—green and silver for Slytherin, or scarlet and gold for Gryffindor—before heading to a performance by the Hogwarts Improvisation Society (Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, 307 W 26th St between Eighth and Ninth Aves;ucbtheatre.com; July 15 at midnight; $5). Led by Professor Londonderry Kirkus (UCBT performer Kirk Damato), the teams face off in improv battles, and each side is able to “curse” the other—one way is to make the opposing team speak only in rhyme for the duration of a scene. Will Slytherin defeat Gryffindor? You have the power to decide—the audience picks the winner.
The audience can get pretty hardcore. Last year I was threatened by a rowdy Ravenclaw, and the rest of Slytherin had to come to my defense.
