Something Wicked

Somerville, MA

Something wicked is an improvised Shakespearean play taken straight out of the pages of the bard himself. A single suggestion will create an entire piece of wonder and hilarity.

Wheel of Austen

Boston, MA

Audiences are invited to seek true love with twisted new plots and period costumes as beloved author Jane Austen gets the improv comedy treatment for ImprovBoston’s newest weekly show Wheel of Austen spinning every Friday night in March at 10PM. Wheel of Austen Director John Herman promises a brand new Jane Austen novel will come to life each night. “Taking classic Austen tropes and putting a new spin on them is a lot of fun. Will there be a marriage proposal? Probably. Smelling salts? Sure! But there might also be a UFO landing. In this show, anything can happen.” During the show, audience members spin a wheel to inspire the cast to play with Austen’s literary conventions in unexpected ways. The show’s creators, who are high school English teachers, assure audiences that the beloved author is treated with respect. “All of Austen’s stories are about people trying to live their best lives possible, which people today aim to achieve, too,” says Producer Michelle Boncek. “The funniest things come from real life. The truth makes us all laugh.”

La Carpe Haute - Just Play

Strasbourg, France

"Just Play" is a free-form show, where comedians base their inspirations on objects borrowed from the audience. From there, everything is a pretext to play : music, lights, furniture, bodies. Just play, like children with infinite imagination."Just Play" is the top international show of La Carpe Haute, already played and planned in many theaters around France and Europe.



Content Disclaimer

Given the ridiculously fun and unpredictable nature of improv, we can't guarantee age appropriateness (every audience gives different suggestions); we recommend Mainstage for those who enjoy PG-13 comedy. If possible profanity and riskier subject matter isn't your thing or you'd prefer not to enable your kids' uncouth tendencies, we highly recommend the Family Show and All Access Improv.
