Let’s Open a Theater this Weekend

Grand Opening: March 3rd 

Two years ago, the members of Stupid Time Machine teamed up with improvisers Chris Trew and Tami Nelson on an idea: let’s open a badass comedy theater and training center in New Orleans.   

A theater requires two things: a community and a physical location to house that community.  As we set about locating and raising money for a permanent space, we got to work building a community.  We spent two years teaching classes out of cafes and borrowed theater space, we did shows wherever we could – bars and empty screen-printing shops, we gathered  a family of badass fearless performers and students, and we even started two major comedy festivals in New Orleans.  And now, after all of that, we finally have a permanent home.

This weekend, join us in celebrating
The New Movement NOLA
1919 Burgundy Street
