Description
The Improvised Shakespeare Company, founded in 2005, entertains audiences around the globe and sells out their recurring limited engagements in New York and LA just from word of mouth and email “advertising”. The ISC has been featured at festivals and events around the county, including Outside Lands in San Francisco, where Sir Patrick Stewart famously played with the group. The company performs a two-act a fully improvised play in Elizabethan style using the language and themes of William Shakespeare, inspired by one audience suggestion (a title for a play that has yet to be written).“Set aside your preconceptions about Shakespearean theater. It’s not all pretentious, puffy-garbed players trained to speak foreign English at the Raised Hand School of Acting. IO Chicago’s rollicking hit show “Improvised Shakespeare” is smart and knowing enough to delight Elizabethan drama fans and charming enough to win over the most avowed Anglophobes. – Centerstage Chicago
