Brian Lohmann

Impro Theatre
Performer, director
Los Angeles, California


Brian Lohmann (Writer, Performing Artist, Scholar-Teacher, Pop Culture 'McGyver') A co-founder of Bay Area Theatresports (BATS), Brian improvised his pants off from 1977-1996 in San Francisco with San Francisco Times, Faultline, Pulp Playhouse and BATS.  His work for L.A.’s Impro Theatre includes directing/performing L.A. Noir UnScripted (Presidio Theatre, Wallis- Annenberg Theatre, Oregon Shakespeare Festival), Tennessee Williams UnScripted (Odyssey Theater/South Coast Rep), Dickens UnScripted (Broad Stage/North Coast Rep) and Shakespeare UnScripted (OSF Green Show.) He loves the classics. Stage credits include 59E59, The Jane St Theatre (Off-Broadway), ACT, The Old Globe, Shakespeare Santa Cruz, Laguna Playhouse and The Magic Theater. His tortured torch singer persona, Johnny Lonely, moped at The Marsh after sulking through European cabarets with J. Raoul Brody and garnering critical pity-praise in Seattle and Australia. He was active in the Bay Area music scene playing original jazz-funk with Phases, “doo-wa-oodly-cooing,” with Acapella Gold at the Savoy Tivoli and Berkeley Jazz Festival, and recreating Bing Crosby Rhythm Boy charts with Scrumbly Koldewyn in The Jesters. He taught improvisation for ACT’s M.F.A program from 1988-1995 and continues to teach Shakespeare and other literary genres using improvisation online. His essay Damned, Smiling Villains, The Pleasure of Not Caring, was anthologized in “Playing Shakespeare’s Villains,”  Peter Lang Press, edited by Louis Fantasia.
