“Amazing! One of the funniest evenings in town. The troupe spins an entire play into comedy gold right before your eyes.” -- The Los Angeles Times

"Phenomenal. Hilarious." -- Stage Raw

“Impro Theatre has evolved into a powerhouse improvisational company in full-length shows that are off-the-cuff and consistently hilarious. An indigenous Los Angeles treasure, the company should be seen — and reseen!” -- The L.A. Times

"Brilliance. A true high-wire act literally beyond belief. There is probably no one else in the world like Impro Theatre." -- Bitter Lemons

"Watching Impro Theatre make up plays is like watching Cirque du Soleil perform acrobatics — a feat that expands the definition of human potential. As theater, this company’s work is consistently as good as anything you can see. There’s not a better company of actors in Los Angeles, and Impro’s playwrights rank with their best contemporaries.” -- Stage And Cinema

Impro Theatre creates completely improvised, full-length plays in the styles of the world’s greatest playwrights, authors and composers. Impro Theatre perfromers are professional actors, writers and directors with decades of experience in theatre, television, film and improv who research, study and rehearse each new author or genre for months, learning everything there is to know about it before taking the stage. They combine verbal dexterity and robust physicality to bring character and story to life in an instant, making each Impro Theatre show unique and unlike any other theatrical experience.

35 Years of Unscripted Theatre

Impro Theatre is a non-profit theatre company that aspires to change the world through joyful artistic engagement by performing, teaching, and expanding storytelling through unscripted theatre. For more than 35 years, Impro Theatre has been the home of genre and Narrative Improv in Los Angeles, constructing fully improvised plays inspired by the works of influential genres, playwrights, and authors.

American Theatre Magazine

“Impro’s work has taught me to demand more from the theatre. These virtuosic talents simply are as superhuman as they seem. They are serious professional actors, classically trained, who can write on their feet better than many writers can type at a desk. Here might be the salvation Theatre seeks.”
