In this 3-hour workshop, veteran improviser Rich Talarico will teach you how to quickly grab a POV (the choice that guides all choices) to develop and nurture your choices using environment, gifts and relationships. Learn how to truly see the world through your character’s eyes in this fun and interactive class!
