About

In an evening of off-the-cuff comedy, this critically acclaimed Chicago-based ensemble creates a fully improvised Shakespearean masterpiece right before your eyes, based on a single audience member's suggestion for the title of a show that's never existed. Nothing has been planned out, rehearsed, or written. All of the dialogue is spoken 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!

The Improvised Shakespeare Company has been performing its show to sold-out audiences since 2005 and currently tours across the North America entertaining thousands every year. The ensemble has been featured at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, Piccolo Spoleto Fringe Festival, Off Broadway in New York City, Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival, Outside Lands Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest, UCB’s Del Close Marathon, 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 numerous awards in LA (Best of LA-LA Weekly), New York (New York Nightlife Awards), and Chicago (The Chicago Improv Foundation).
