Improvised Shakespeare Company

Sold out to Chicago audiences since 2005, The “staggeringly brilliant” (TimeOut Chicago) Improvised Shakespeare Company is sure to delight. With fully improvised Shakespearian dialogue, each show is distinct. The characters are formed as the show goes on and no one knows where the show will lead, not even the actors! Using language and themes from William Shakespeare, the all male cast creates a night of “off the cuff comedy” while allowing a brand new story to unfold.

Called “smart, sophisticated, downright hilarious” by Timeout Chicago, the critically-acclaimed cast entertains audiences nationwide with its touring company. Featured at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Off-Broadway in New York City, and Just for Laughs in Chicago and Montreal, along with winning awards in LA, New York City, and Chicago, The Improvised Shakespeare Company has been loved throughout the nation.
