Twenty years ago, ABC pulled the plug on one of the most brilliant TV series of all time, leaving behind a tangled web of dangling plot threads and unanswered questions. Now, eight of New York’s most Twin Peaks-obsessed improvisers will take matters into their own hands, picking up exactly where the series left off and continuing until this groundbreaking phenomenon has received the resolution it deserves.
How’s Annie, you ask? Improvisation pros J Hobart B, Danielia Donohue, Michael Newman, Reilly Owens, Greg Portz, James Rich, Lorie Steele and Shawn Wickens might answer that question once and for all. In These Woods is the third season that Twin Peaks never had, live and improvised on stage of the The P.I.T. (Peoples Improv Theater) in New York City! Needless to say, I already got my ticket for next week’s show.
Here’s the trailer for In These Woods:
