Switchboard is the improv super-duo comprised of Second City alumnae Jean Villepique (iO Chicago, The Office, 30 Rock, Up All Night) and Rebecca Sohn (Annoyance Theatre, IO Chicago, Steppenwolf, Remy Bumppo). In their long-form show, the women move fluidly from one scene to the next using a variety of improvised transitions. The shows can be very rhythmic, dance-like and musical as they often improvise songs a capella. These veteran improvisers use all their skills to bring a wide variety of characters to their scene work, which may be stylized or contemporary. It’s a must-see if you love clever, funny shows starring two of the most talented improvisers out there.
