After a sell-out debut this summer (loved by LAist) Impro Theatre is back with a return engagement of Jane Austen Unscripted. Their talented players take to the boards of Santa Monica's Theatre Asylum at 7 p.m. tonight (and at 8 on Fridays and Saturdays) to give you an unpredictable--and improvised--night of Austen-esque satire, romantic comedy, and, of course, love. Reservations: (323) 960-7753.

If the weather isn't a deterrent, you might want to head over to La Canada's Descanso Gardens to take part in their all-day Japanese Garden Festival. Enjoy the grace and power of Japanese dance and taiko drummers, as well as the beauty of Japanese flower arranging, along with a traditiional Ikebana Display, a Full Moon Tea, mum workshop, taiko drum performances, Japanese bookmaking workshop, and Japanese dancers. The events are free with garden admission. They're open until 5 p.m. today.
