SoHa Author's Book Details Denver Improv Scene
SoHa author, Pam O'Mara is working feverishly to meet the Fall publication date for her book, Suggestion Please: Denver's Secret Improv Culture. The book, which focuses on Denver’s unique improv community, is based on dozens of interviews with improvisers, audience members, producers, instructors, coaches, students, and people who just really like improv theater.
When asked about her approach to the book, she said, “I’m letting the story unfold -- just like an improv scene should and hopefully does.” Pam fell in love with and became addicted to improv the first time she tried it. “I started doing improv in 1971 when I was 16. There’s no getting it out of my system.” What you should know:
- (An IOU for) a copy of the book is a silent auction item at the Avenue Theater’s Fundraiser on Fri 8/26.
- Ms. O’Mara will be talking about her book at the Mizel Arts and Culture Center’s JAAMM Festival in late October.
- The book is dedicated to the person who taught her to laugh and that silly is good: her father, who passed away this summer.
