THE IMPROVISED SHAKESPEARE COMPANY
Created and directed by Blaine Swen
Starring: Brendan Dowling, Greg Hess, Thomas Middleditch, Blaine Swen and Joey Bland.

DESCRIPTION:
Based on one audience suggestion (a title for a play that has yet to be written) The Improvised Shakespeare Company creates a fully improvised Shakespearean masterpiece right before your eyes.  Nothing is 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!  You've never seen the Bard like this before!

WHAT THE CRITICS HAVE SAID:

"DOWNRIGHT HILARIOUS... STAGGERINGLY BRILLIANT" -Time Out Chicago

"The chemistry among the performers was amazing, and their play came together seamlessly. By the time they started to speak in rhyming couplets, the crowd was totally sold... Don't miss them.  Seriously." - Time Out New York

"Anyone who still needs convincing that improv can produce an independent piece of capital-A Art would do well to see The Improvised Shakespeare Company... Neither laughter nor amazement is short in supply" - Decider/ The Onion

"Mind-blowing... It was one of the funniest, most amazing things I've ever seen." -The Charleston City Paper

"Go laugh your iams off.."  - New York Times
