 Four years ago, Lisa Allison was on the road to domestic bliss when her fiancée unceremoniously dumped her.  Unwilling to wallow in her loss, Ms. Allison threw herself back “on the market”, reporting her exploits in the now famous 100fd.com blog. 

During the course of her journey, Lisa did find one true love:  Improvisational Theater!  After studying at various improv schools throughout New York, she found herself in an advanced Performance Intensive class taught/directed by Treehouse Resident Director Rob Reese.  Reese and Allison have been work-shopping this project with a company of hilarious improvisers at The Congregation’sSundae Sundae Sundae residency at The Treehouse Theater.



100 First Dates (the improv show) was created by Rob Reese and Lisa Allison  (The 100 First Dates blog is the sole creation of Lisa Allison).

The show is Directed by Rob Reese and features Lisa Allison, Beth Hicks, Emma Krulik, Patrick McCartney, Justin Mcelwee, and Rob Reese. 

The Congregation is an independent performance collective created around Rob Reese’s directing residency at The Treehouse Theater.  Members are made up from Reese’s Performance Intensive classes at The Treehouse Theater and form several resident companies or “house teams” including 100 First DatesFive for Vendetta, andVice Cream.  New York City’s longest running independent theatrical improv troupe Amnesia Wars also performs weekly at The Congregation’s Sundae! Sundae! Sundae! scriptless variety evening!

The Congregation seeks to bridge the gaps between theater and improvisational comedy by holding weekly laboratories for its members.  Weekly workshops in improvisation, movement, music and scripted theater are taught by Reese and a variety of highly qualified professional artists.  The Congregation’s current season runs at The Treehouse Theater through April.

100 First Dates Director Rob Reese is the Resident Director at The Treehouse Theater and is also the Artistic Director of Amnesia Wars Productions.  He is also an award winning director and writer of scripted theater, musicals, and operas.  Reese was named a 2014 Indie Theater Person of the Year and inducted into the Independent Theater Hall of Fame.

The Treehouse Theater is available for rentals and artist-friendly production packages.
