Huff’s humor has “an infectious joyousness that makes you happy to be alive” and she “makes confident choices and creates loud, defined characters that are both unbearable and hilarious”.

The art of improvisation creates stories from thin air, making the unseen seen. For Amanda Rountree, this is not just an artform, but a way of life — one that includes unexpected twists and turns — leading, if not to mastery, to enlightenment.  Written and performed by Amanda Rountree, and directed by Jen Ellison, this show follows the artist on her path with all of the funny and touching moments along the way.
