Funhouse Lounge presents Stranded.

The Funhouse Improvisers the premiere of its next pop-culture-inspired improvised show “Stranded,” running four weekends starting August 12.

The show “Stranded” begins with the premise: What if the castaways from “Gilligan’s Island” were shipwrecked on the island from “Lost?” Each performance, the rotating cast of improvisers will portray that iconic septet of castaways, exploring the island to find danger, mystery, and comedy.

“The show preserves that fun, carefree spirit from the original ‘Gilligan’s Island,’ while mixing in some of the darker moments in the style of ‘Lost,’ with its weird secrets and character flashbacks,” said director Mandy Khoshnevisan. “Both shows are essentially about complete strangers forced to live together in a strange place. Who knows who they are and what they’re really like?”

The Funhouse is familiar with paying homage to beloved popular culture on the improv stage, having previously created such shows as “Deadwood Unscripted”; “USS: Improvise,” a musical inspired by “Star Trek: The Next Generation”; and “Murder Mystery Machine,” a mashup of “Scooby Doo” and slasher films.

Directed by Mandy Khoshnevisan
Starring: The Funhouse Lounge Artists In Residence

    i thought lost kinda petered out near the end, so re-imagining it gilligan-style sounds pretty spot-on!

      Why I’d like to attend… I love improv and am having a first date after six months, and I think this would be fun to go to together.

    Sounds like a great way to get a hermit out of the house. A comedic view of a sociology experiment gone hilariously wrong!

    Are panty liners recommended?

    I grew up watching “Gilligan’s Island.” This show sounds hysterical.

    This HAS TO HAVE a better ending! I’m curious to find out.

    My mom would watch ‘Gilligan’s’ all the time in my youth, and now I watch and rewatch ‘Lost’ at a compulsive level. It would be entertaining as f*+k to see them combined through comedy!

    Wow this sounds like an awesome show!

  16. scott clemo August 22, 2016 at 1:09 pm #

    This would be bad ass!
