Harold & Maude was an improv duo.


Press Blurb

Their press blurb, taken from a 2011 application to perform at The Hideout Theatre:

What if young Harold Chassan and good ol' Dame Marjorie Fadam got together in her train car home for a little oat straw tea, some Cat Stevens sing-alongs and a bit of improv fun? It would probably look something like this; Daniel Rigney & Jay Byrd perform a "maudified" improv harold, with fresh songs and stale ginger pie.

"What's Your Deal?"

Their answer to the "What's Your Deal?" question on a 2011 application to perform at The Hideout Theatre:

We do a "maudified" harold, starting with an introduction of the main characters (Harold & Maude) in Maude's train car home. The audience is a welcomed surprise to them; they take a suggestion, do character monologues. The games between the three-scene beats are Harold & Maude again, singing improvised songs to the tunes of Cat Stevens, played on guitar and/or keyboard; the scenes themselves are inspired by situations in the main characters' lives, as they see fit to improvise them.
