Years Active 2010-Present

The Randy Meisner is an improv troupe that focuses on Meisner techniques.

[edit] History

The troupe was founded by Jon Bolden, David Hess, and John Ratliff in the spring of 2010 after a series of meetings attempting to learn the acting techniques of Sanford Meisner. Shortly after they discontinued their training, they formed a troupe to experiment with the Meisner techniques they developed.

A few years later, they asked Kareem Badr to join the troupe to further differentiate the troupe from The Glamping Trip, a frequently performing duo comprised of John Ratliff, and David Hess.

Here is John Ratliff's explanation of the name's origin:
Hess and I were doing Meisner exercises in rehearsal (all wrong, as it turns out) and invited Jon Bolden to join us. When we played a show I suggested calling ourselves the Randy Meisner. I assumed that almost nobody would realize that was also the name of the first bassist for the Eagles and I was right.
