The original space, henceforth UCB Franklin, isn’t going anywhere, but this new venue’s 85-seat theater will host a number of new and familiar shows (including Sunday’s free ASSSSCAT performances). This is the still the casual, madcap UCB you know and love, overflow floor seating and all. But the new Sunset venue finally provides a proper home base for its training center, with 14 classrooms dedicated to sketch students. You’ll even find a cafe, the Inner Sanctum, that doubles as a pop-up performance space—think of it as a college dorm common room. That’s all good news for the hundreds of Harold Team hopefuls that sign up for the school’s coveted classes.
RECOMMENDED: UCB's new Sunset theater is here to set the improv scene on fire (literally)
