Messing With A Friend plays late every Thursday night at the Annoyance Theatre in Chicago, which is a block from the Argyle El station. She performs with one partner (sometimes two), who’s the friend, for one hour by starting with a line thrown out by the audience and everything is improvised as Messing moves it through about ten or twelve scenes. Her instinct for knowing when to end a scene is unerring and her wildness always serves the rhythm of the beat within it.
