Crossroads Comedy Theater is excited to welcome a one night only, guest performance of The Wadsworth Constant featuring Nick Gillette & Kristen Schier!
Improvised Absurdist One-Act Plays by Portland’s Kristen Schier and Philadelphia’s Nick Gillette. Professional idiocy in a world of amateur idiots. Drawing from the theatrical traditions of Albee, Ionesco, and Beckett, two veteran improvisors launch themselves into a newly generated world of absurdity and existentialist themes. Since its inception in 2014, the Wadsworth Constant has continued to astound and delight audiences from coast to coast.
