Chicago Theater Workout Group
In January of 2011, Kevin Mullaney set up set up an open enrollment improv (and acting) practice group in Chicago. The idea was to use meetup.com as a way to organize weekly improv practice sessions with a rotating cast of coaches. Each practice session would be set up as an event on meetup. Members could sign up to reserve their spot. They could show up for any or all of the practice sessions. The goal would be to eventually have open practice sessions available almost every night of the week so that performers could always find a group to practice with.
