About this Performance

With nothing more than a title shouted from the audience, The Improvised Shakespeare Company creates an entire play on the spot—comedy, tragedy, or history in the Shakespearean mold, all of it delivered in the “thee” and “thou”-laden English of The Bard. Nothing is planned, nothing is rehearsed, and each play is completely new and starts with one audience suggestion to kick off the fun. The LA-based troupe got its start in Chicago and has performed everywhere from Bonnaroo to Montreal’s Just for Laughs to local comedy spots Largo at the Coronet. See the show TimeOut Chicago calls “staggeringly brilliant” and “downright hilarious!” You've never seen the Bard like this before!
