Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre Performs Damned If You Do
July 10 - July 29, 2018
- Approximately two and a half hours, with one intermission
What if you finally try moonlight rock climbing? What if you call your Uncle Ted out on his godawful toupee? What if you call in drunk—sorry, sick—to work on Friday? What if you get up the courage to tell your mom you actually hate her meatloaf? How different could your life be because of one seemingly innocuous choice?
Before you decide, let The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre—the world’s most audacious improv troupe that launched the careers of Amy Poehler, Kate McKinnon, Ellie Kemper, and Bobby Moynihan—play out your potential futures in front of your eyes… just to be sure it won’t make your life a complete and total disaster.

"The laughs circle back to what these sharp-eyed comics have learned in front of us about a couple of us. It’s bonding, and explosively cathartic."
"Spontaneous characters. Nimble, ridiculous banter. Absurd situations. All in a package that’ll only ever happen once in a lifetime."
DC Metro Theater Arts
"UCB demonstrates incredible ingenuity and resilience... To spend an evening marveling at ephemeral art born of courage, cooperation, and communal effort will, given the chance, restore this partisan city’s optimism for a brighter future."
