About Improvised Shakespeare

One of Chicago’s most popular shows, THE IMPROVISED SHAKESPEARE CO performs a two-act 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).

Run Time

1 Hour

Start Date


Recommended for ages 16 and older.

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.”
