I have been to several Improv show and I took my sister for the first time. This was hands down the most entertaining show yet. We were laughing so loud it was embarrassing and still laugh when remembering the scenes.

What a beautiful way to spend an evening after a lovely day in the Marina. The cast is versatile and talented. The play they spun for us out of thin air was humorous and accessible. It was a joy to watch.

Had a great time ! Will definitely go again! Very talented actors created a complete Shakespearean play with romance, loss, ruin, and comedy.

BATS Improv, the Bay Area’s favorite improvisational theatre company, presents a night of improvised Shakespeare. In this completely improvised Elizabethan play, the audience supplies the title and the story takes off from there — plot, characters and more are made up right there on the spot using the language and themes that made Shakespeare famous. Get thee to BATS Improv to see if it will be comedy, tragedy, history…or a little bit of all three.
