BWW Review: Impro's TENNESSEE WILLIAMS UNSCRIPTED Scores at the Falcon
by Don Grigware - Jun 21, 2016

If you have never seen a production of the Impro Theatre Company, be aware that the play you see is one-time only. With the suggestion from an audience member at the top of the name of an heirloom, the actors take it, title the play, and then create the characters and the play totally from scratch. Everything that happens is spontaneous and will never be repeated in another performance. It makes me question what the job of the director, in this case member Brian Lohmann, actually is?

by Maggie Yates - Dec 2, 2015

A lengthy, stylized improvised narrative, especially one that isn't rooted in the predictable contingency of absurd comedy, is a sophisticated practice—one that Impro Theatre, a Los Angeles-based improvisational group presented in Santa Barbara by Instant Karma Improv Comedy, presents in abundance.

BWW Preview: Impro Theatre and Instant Karma Present the Middle Ground Between Scripted Scenes and Complete Chaos in TWILIGHT ZONE UNSCRIPTED
by Maggie Yates - Nov 18, 2015

There are many dimensions of performance art--some beyond that of traditional theatre. These dimensions are as vast as space and as timeless as infinity, and in the middle ground between scripted scenes and complete chaos is a performance style we call 'Improvisational Theatre.'

BWW Preview: JANE AUSTEN UNSCRIPTED--Theatre/Literature Double Majors Rejoice!
by Maggie Yates - Mar 9, 2015
