Chicago City Limits
September 26, 2009
Imagine walking out onto a blank stage. There is no script, no set, no preconceived ideas. Suddenly the stage lights flash and the show starts. Some call this “the actor's nightmare.” Others call it Improvisational Theatre. The Chicago City Limits touring company, often called “The perfect masters of improvisation,” has thrilled audiences of all ages for nearly thirty years with a unique style of improv comedy. From performances on Comedy Central, to PBS, to the Today Show, no two shows are alike. Director Paul Zuckerman defines improvisation as “comedy without a net.” The troupe creates a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience by taking suggestions from audience members and crafting scenes on the spot - everything from mini-musicals to game shows. The result is a hilarious evening of comedy that is totally unique.
