It’s so Bad, it just might be good. The LP Series tackles Michael Jackson’s 1987 effort, the fifth best-selling album of all time. During Saturday night’s show, performers solicit (hee!) suggestions from the audience and combine them with “musical inspirations” and lightning-quick improv thinking to whip up entertainment on the spot.
And there’s plenty of recognizable material to draw from. “Smooth Criminal,” “Man in the Mirror,” “Dirty Diana” and “The Way You Make Me Feel” are just some of the better-known songs. Mixtape members come from across Calgary’s improv community, including Loose Moose, Dirty Laundry and The Improv Guild. The show takes place at the Birds and Stone Theatre at 10 p.m., following the Kinkonaut’s show at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door.
