The Brody's double focus--on entertainment and experiment--marks it as a showcase for both audience-pleasing performances and cutting edge theatrical presentation.  The Brody school, both a training ground for its own improvisers and a workshop for actors wishing to broaden their skills, creates at the theater a vital and vibrant exchange; Saturday night's spontaneous stage discovery becomes Monday's workshop focus, and vice-versa. This chemistry is one reason the Brody school counts among its students many members of other area performance troupes.

Forget the elaborate sets. Forget the expensive costumes, the opening night galas, the plush seats.

Carol Triffle and Jerry Mouawad, the creators of Imago, have been called alchemists, magicians, theatrical animators, and physical comedians. Defying classification, they have populated the stage with characters and beings such as comedic amphibians, acrobatic larvae, circus boulders, and metamorphosing humans in works which tantalize the senses, the intellect, and the passions. From adaptations of classics to excursions into vaudevillian existentialism, Imago's repertoire is as vast as the forms they shape. With commissions for stage, film, and television, Imago blurs the lines of the expected to break new ground, exploding performance boundaries yet maintaining humor and humanity.
