  1. I studied with Paul the master decades ago at the improv club in Los Angeles for a time. I’m trying to remember a few of the story theater exercises we played for a beginner class
    Can you refresh my memory? Great work you’re doing. Thanks for sharing from the profound pool of improv intelligence

    1. Dear Melanie, Thanks for stopping by and sharing your memories with us! All the exercises Paul did in workshop can be found in Viola Spolin’s Improvisation for the Theater, 3rd edition, which is still in print and available online or in stores. It’s a good bet you played Mirror, Who Am I?, and Transformation of Relationship, among other games!
