It's been almost a decade since Coldtowne Theater relocated from New Orleans to Austin, and in the years they've been here, they've become one of our city's premiere sources for improvised entertainment.
Their latest show is Beware of Female Spies, which takes its inspiration not just from the spy genre at large, but from a particular recurring trope within many spy shows and movies, that trope being the highly competent female spy who manages to save the day while her semi-clueless male partner stumbles through the case.
While you'll see that basic plot every time Beware of Female Spies takes the stage, most everything else about the show will change. Every week, different cast members will play a competent female spy, a not-quite-so-competent male spy, a supervillian, and other assorted spy-movie characters. After getting audience suggestions on supervillianous ways to take over the world, they'll create a full-length comedic spy spoof on the spot.
Saturdays at 8:30 pm in January
