As The Diamond Burns
An improvised soap opera performed by the group Hot Lather at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in 2008 and 2009. As the Diamond Burns follows a form where each "episode" was a stand-alone show; no prior experience with past shows were needed to enjoy the current show. As the Diamond Burns follows a form where snippets of scenes from "last week's episode" were improvised in an opening to generate information for the show. As the Diamond Burns employs returning characters, although their backstory and relationships would vary from show to show.
Musical accompaniment by Ari Scott.
