The EDGE Improv

The EDGE Improv's riotous antics have inspired rave reviews from shrewd onlookers since the dawn of time. The troupe performs to sell-out crowds regularly at BPA where their shenanigans have earned a devoted community of followers seeking respite from life’s wearisome details. For nearly a quarter century, The EDGE Improv has ingeniously improvised facts of all persuasion. Their promise of "imagination on demand" routinely relies on audience suggestions. You won’t want to miss their first-Saturday performances, which troupe member Ken Ballenger likens to therapy (but cheaper!).

“There have been dozens of bread-baking books published over the past few years. So why is this compact book the one that finally got me to make my first starter? It’s all about the approach. This book is short, friendly, packed with helpful sidebars, and suggests that the first thing you make with your starter be pancakes (always a way into my heart). Yes, I know, sourdough is complicated, and those trendy door-stopping bread books probably have more details about how to not mess it up. But Sourdough on the Rise makes me believe I can make sourdough in a more relaxed way. Which is, frankly, the only way I’m ever going to get off my ass and do it.” —David Tamarkin, Epicurious
