Broad Selection is a powerhouse of some of Portland’s most experienced improv performers and teachers: Kerry Leek, Lisa DiDonato Brousseau, Marilyn Divine, Betse Green, Adrien Warner, Adrienne Flagg, Janet Scanlon, Katie Nguyen, Mariah Muñoz, and Whitney Johnson. The troupe grew out of Portland’s Brody Theater, where the women of the ensemble banded together as Girls! Girls! Girls! way back in 2003. They performed regularly at the Brody and were featured at the 2017 Stumptown Improv Festival.
The work of Broad Selection has always centered around sharing personal stories with the audience. Their current format, directed by Kerry Leek, builds off a rhythmic presentation of true stories that inspire improvised tales that are fun, witty, and often quite moving.
