This is a forward from a professor at the University of San Diego:
The Improvised Shakespeare Company will perform at USD's IPJ Theatre on SAT 1 DEC, at 8PM.
If you've never seen an ISC show, believe me: there's nothing like it. I've seen them perform many times (in NYC, LA, San Francisco, Chicago) and I marvel every single time. Their improvisation form is one of the most impressive things you'll ever witness onstage: they ask the audience to make up a title (I once saw an uproariously funny tragedy called "The Jersey Shire") and then the five performers improvise an entire Elizabethan-style play, in iambic pentameter, on the spot – complete with rhymed couplets, sonnets, song, dance, revenge, romance, fairies, star-crossed lovers, tyrannical kings, and other Shakespearean tropes. I don't know if it's going to be a comedy, a tragedy, or a history...I just know it's both the opening night and the closing night.
One more thing: I guarantee it will be hilarious, from start to finish.
