Improvisational Repertory Theatre Ensemble is Spontaneous & Uproarious In 2018
More than six years ago, a group of theatrically-trained artists came together to create spontaneous and uproarious retro-themed improv-comedy shows. Their brilliance at stage craft made each event deeper and funnier than any other troupe of its kind. Today, the multi-award-winning national improv comedy troupe - the Improvisational Repertory Theatre Ensemble - is a respected leader in both the improv and theatrical circles. An alum of numerous comedy and theatre festivals, IRTE is an ensemble of comedy actors and writers who develop, produce and perform a season of original themed improvisational shows, following the basic model of traditional repertory theatre.
Making The Producers Club, 358 West 44th Street, NYC, their home, the highly-skilled fighting force of fun-makers have prepared a season celebrating Saturday morning cartoons (a revival of one of their inaugural pieces); horror shows and sci-fi flicks; and a little bit of Quentin Tarantino in their tribute to black & white suspense films.
In the style of Saturday Night Live, IRTE features a musical guest. In the past, IRTE spotlighted cabaret artists like Tym Moss and instrumentalists like guitarist John Munnelly. Look for info on this season's kool musical guests.
