For 10 years, THE IMPROVISED SHAKESPEARE COMPANY has been blazing an Elizabethan trail through the city's improv scene, where comedy shows rarely see such longevity. The reason it hast did last so long: 'Tis v'ry, v'ry good.
Chicago Tribune
“It's a night of Elizabethan tomfoolery that's not to be missed.” “staggeringly brilliant.” “In short, outstanding.”
