Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre: Improv Everywhere “Conduct Us - An Orchestra in the Middle of New York”
Those madcap miscreants at Improv Everywhere were up to their old tricks again yesterday, as a Carnegie Hall orchestra (more like a chamber orchestra from what can be seen) was set up in the middle of New York City, with an empty podium place in front of the musicians with a sign that read, “Conduct Us.” Those who accepted the challenge were given the opportunity to conduct this world-class (chamber?) orchestra. The orchestra responded to the conductors, altering their tempo and performance accordingly.
Why don't these things ever happen to me?
