The Improvised Shakespeare Company has been performing its critically acclaimed show to sold out audiences in Chicago since 2005. The ISC also continues to entertain audiences across the US with its national touring company.
Based on one audience suggestion (a title for a play that has yet to be written) The Improvised Shakespeare Co. creates a fully improvised Shakespearean masterpiece right before your very eyes! Each of the players has brushed up on his “thee’s” and “thou’s” to bring you an evening of off-the-cuff comedy using the language and themes of William Shakespeare. Nothing has been planned out, rehearsed, or written. All of the dialogue is said for the first time, the characters are created as you watch, and if ever you’re wondering where the story is going…so are they! The night could reveal a tragedy, comedy, or history. Each play is completely improvised, so each play is entirely new! Learn more.
“…the show channels Monty Python as often as the Bard, and frequently with sly-witted results.” -The Chicago Tribune
