Improvised Shakespeare Company to Play ImprovBoston, 2/17
ImprovBoston and the Chicago-based nationally acclaimed Improvised Shakespeare Company join forces for one night only to create a fully improvised, fully comedic Shakespearean masterpiece. Starting from a single audience suggestion, the Company uses Shakespeare's themes and language to bring an unforgettable evening of off-the-cuff comedy. Nothing has been planned out, rehearsed, or written. All of the dialogue is spoken for the first (and last) time, the characters are created on spot, and nobody - not even the actors themselves - know where the show is headed. The night could reveal a tragedy, comedy, or history. Each play is completely improvised; each play is entirely new.
Chicago's ISC comes to ImprovBoston in Cambridge for an exclusive one night only appearance on Monday, February 17 at 7:30PM. Tickets are $18 and available at improvboston.com.
The Improvised Shakespeare Company, founded in 2005, has been performing its critically-acclaimed show to sold out audiences at the world famous iO Theater in Chicago for over seven years. The ISC also continues to entertain audiences across the US with its national touring company. The ISC has been featured at the Piccolo Spoleto Fringe Festival, Off Broadway in New York City, Bonnaroo, the Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest, UCB's Del Close Marathon, and the prestigious Just For Laughs festival in Montreal and Chicago. It has been named Chicago's best improv group by both the Chicago Reader and the Chicago Examiner, has been honored by the Chicago Improv Foundation, and has received a New York Nightlife Award for "Best Comedic Performance by a Group".
