Gravid Water is a theatrical-comedy experiment where actors are given real scenes from real plays that they prepare as they would for a regular play. They are paired with improvisers who have no prior knowledge of the scenes—seeing and reacting to them for the first time on stage. The always surprising results are hilarious, heartbreaking, and everything in between. Gravid Water has played to sold-out houses in New York and Los Angeles for over 15 years. Starring the biggest names in comedy, Broadway, television, and movies, they’re honored to bring this wild experiment to The Kennedy Center.
Featuring improvisers Becky Drysdale, John Lutz, Jason Mantzoukas, Stephen Ruddy, Tami Sagher, and Brian Stack.
