Stranger is a PIT House Team that performs in repertory on Super Free Wednesday at 8pm at The Peoples Improv Theater.

History

The team was originally assembled by the PIT's ensemble committee on January 10th, 2011. They perform regularly as part of the theater's Super Free Wednesday lineup. Their first show took place on January 12th, 2011.

Name Origin

The name Stranger is a direct pull from the first show the team performed together, when they were still unnamed. In the show, the first group involved a drunk Billy Joel trying to record his 1977 album "The Stranger", but he and his band were too drunk to play their instruments.

Memorable Shows

On February 2nd, 2011, Stranger performed their Groundhogs Day Show, a form they created moments before walking onstage for their Super Free Wednesday time-slot. On June 8th, 2011, another SFW show, Stranger performed Urban Superhero.
