Strictly Platonic, A Two-Person Show: Aidan Mewha & Tyler Benedict

Tyler and Aidan, also known as Strictly Platonic, met in their Level 1 improv class, and they haven’t been able to shake each other since.  They had so much fun performing their two-person show on the Black Box mainstage that they took Strictly Platonic on tour, booking shows at the Nestival (Columbus, OH) and the Detroit Improv Festival, where they opened for Paul F. Tompkins and the DIF All-Stars. 

 

Now, Strictly Platonic is back home at the Black Box every single Friday, taking your one-word suggestion and creating a full one-act play full of zany characters. Come see the improv sensation described as “not terrible” across the Midwest!

 Saturdays:

Reverse Mortgage/Improvised Musical:

Reverse Mortgage? Yep! The Black Box’s most seasoned Improvisers take the stage for the first half of the night, and they’ll get inspirations for scenes from audience stories or a one word suggestion.

Then after the intermission…..Welcome to Dayton’s favorite improvised show: The Improvised Musical with Trey Stone & The Black Box Band. Trey was the former music director of The Second City Chicago, and now, he’s ours! He leads the Black Box Band; Josephine Boltin on percussion & Bryan Lakatos of the local band ‘Shrug’ on bass. On stage we have for you our top hand-picked cast to bring you the lyrics, melody, and scene building skills that make up this impressive show!

**Improvised Musicals schedules are subject to change, as Trey Stone tours the country with comedy legends.**
