Frank Booth in the Blue Velvet Lounge
Frank Booth in the Blue Velvet Lounge was a collaboration between ImprovOlympic house team, Frank Booth and Tara Davis. It was an improvised show inspired by songs chosen by Tara and her accompanist John Fischer (also a member of Frank Booth). The show was set at the fictional Blue Velvet Lounge where Tara performed jazz standards. In between the songs, members of Frank Booth would improvised scenes, some of which were set in the lounge audience, others that were set elsewhere and featured characters we met in the lounge.
The show ran in the fall of 1995 in the cabaret theatre at ImprovOlympic and was produced by the Chicago Improv Syndicate.
Frank Booth was named after Dennis Hopper's character in Blue Velvet.
