The Improv

Emmy-awarding-winning actress and meteorologist M.J. McDermott has written a novel for mature young readers called The Improv, and it's based on her real-life experiences. When a young actress is cast in a college production of the musical Hair, her excitement is mixed with some trepidation, as the show's director is known for his violent, sexually intense, and secretive improv exercises. When she discovers the truth about them, it calls into question whether the director is a ground-breaking acting coach or a manipulative voyeur using his position to indulge himself.
