Is Valentine's Day finally over? For fuck's sake. So you survived Singles Awareness Day, or the Val-pocalypse, and now you need some tension relief. The improv geniuses of The Upperclassmen, who come straight outta Long Beach, present Valentine's Breakdown at STAGEStheatre. Here, the broken-hearted and depressed can find solace with comical interpretations of The Dating Game, Party Quirks and Hell Date. Delight in the bizarre as this improv troupe takes obscure dating scenarios and spin them well beyond the realm of sane. Bring your friends, one may get chosen to come on stage and embarrass themselves—and laughing at someone else is, truly, the best antidote for a heavy heart.
