About the Directors: S.G. Kramer and Daniel Johnston:

Co-Directors Susan G. Kramer and Daniel Johnston.
Co-Directors Susan G. Kramer and Daniel Johnston.

Inspired by so many wildly gifted artists, S.G. Kramer birthed W.I.G.’s truly unique style of improvisational storytelling over six years ago. Kramer and Johnston have worked side by side on W.I.G.’s vision since its inception (Kramer as W.I.G.’s coach and Johnston as performer as well as co-director). Together, along with countless stellar improv artists, they have created and cracked open the magic that is W.I.G.!
