The Improvised Shakespeare Company


20Add to calendar

Based on one audience suggestion The Improvised Shakespeare Company creates a fully improvised Shakespearean masterpiece right before your eyes.  Nothing is planned-out, rehearsed, or written.  All of the dialogue is said for the first time, the characters are created as you watch, and if ever you’re wondering where the story is going…so are they!  You’ve never seen the Bard like this before!

From Chicago, The Improvised Shakespeare Company entertains audiences around the globe.  They have been featured at the Bonarroo & Bumbershoot Arts Festivals, and the prestigious Just For Laughs festival in Montreal and Chicago.  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”.
