Usually a monthly occurrence at the Drake Hotel, Neutrino has a basic premise with an interesting twist. Rather than doing improv in front of the audience, the troupe leaves the theatre equipped with a couple of video cameras and do the show from the streets of Toronto. As someone noted upon leaving, it makes you look at the area differently, knowing that they has just filmed on those steps, near that bush, in the tree…
The players are quite talented and be prepared to welcome a guest. Torontoist was lucky enough to see Neutrino with Christian Potenza, the Toothbrush from the Listerine commercials.
If you’re going to see one improv show at Fr!nge, this one is a good bet. I’d try to make it to the Saturday showing though, since 10:30pm has nudity written all over it…
Warning: Language. Chances of Nudity. Cold theatre… bring a sweater.
Pre-show entertainment: Pretty good stand-up.
