Like your improv with a dose of the Bard? You are in lucky. Improvised Shakespeare returns to New York for a four-night engagement at Theater 80 in the East Village. The esteemed company has wowed audiences around the world–from Seattle to Italy–with its signature comedy. And, most Friday nights, you can catch them doing their schtick iO Theater in Chicago.

In fact, the company has garnered numerous awards, including the New York Nightlife Award for Best Comedic Performance by a Group and the Chicago Improv Foundation’s Ensemble of the Year. The Chicago Reader and the Chicago Examiner named the company Chicago’s best improv group.
 
How it works: an audience member suggests a title, and the actors, on the spot, creates a play in Elizabethan style. Star-crossed lovers. Cross dressing. Mad rulers. Adultery. Murder. These are all tropes that the company borrows from when performing its new play on stage. It’s a fast and furious experience, and one, that if you know even the littlest about Shakespeare, is enjoyable.
 
The Improvised Shakespeare Company is at Theatre 80 January 9 – 12.
