Based on one audience suggestion (a title for a play that has yet to be written) THE IMPROVISED SHAKESPEARE COMPANY creates a fully improvised play in Elizabethan style. Nothing is planned-out, rehearsed, or written. Each play is completely improvised, so each play is entirely new!

THE IMPROVISED SHAKESPEARE COMPANY has been performing its critically-acclaimed show every week at the world famous iO Theater for over six years and continues to entertain audiences around the globe with its touring company. Their limited engagements in New York City have become a very hot ticket, performing to sold out standing room only houses.  The ISC has been featured at The Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival, The Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, and most recently they blew crowds away and got a standing ovation at The BONNAROO Festival in Tennessee. The ISC has been named Chicago's best improv group by both the Chicago Reader and the Chicago Examiner and has received a New York Nightlife Award for "Best Comedic Performance by a Group". The ISC has also been honored by the Chicago Improv Foundation as its "Ensemble of the Year".

THE IMPROVISED SHAKESPEARE COMPANY returns to THE ELEPHANT THEATRE in Los Angeles for 2 shows only January 28th and 29th, 2014.  Their appearances always sell out so get your tickets now!
