Stone Soup Improv is an East Bay improvisational theater troupe based in Oakland, California. Stone Soup Improv performances blend a wide mix of theater games and scene styles from artistic to provocative. The shows are highly interactive, incorporating audience suggestions, and strive to keep the audience fully engaged throughout the performance. Like in the old fable, Stone Soup Improv provides the stock and the audience adds the spice to the hearty theater stew we create together.
Stone Soup Improv arose from the former East Bay Improv troupe in 2008. The troupe’s eclectic mix of performers, with a wide diversity of backgrounds, creates a unique stage energy. Stone Soup Improv is Alan Becker, Emily Duffy, Ryan Fuller, Dan Rosenthal, Adrianna Russell, Dan Russell (on sound), Jennifer Simmons and Jonathan Stern. Since June 2008, the troupe has performed monthly sold-out shows at Oakland’s Temescal Arts Center.
