Subject To Change
Subject To Change is Finest City Improv’s ensemble peg that fits in no hole and every hole at the same time. Described as “the gunslingers of improv” viewers are warned to refrain from blinking as what you see on stage will not be what it is, because everything becomes what it isn’t, and what it is, it wouldn’t be, and what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?
