Improv Playhouse of San Francisco will perform a completely improvised piece using their original format, “Improvised Shakespeare,” at Center Stage in downtown Santa Cruz on Friday, March 3, staring at 8:00 pm. Tickets are free and limited to UCSC affiliates. They will be available via Brown Paper Tickets. (One ticket reservation per UCSC email.) The players describe the performance this way: “Shakespeare’s stories take place in a tumultuous world full of unrequited love, treachery, passion, war, mistaken identity, political intrigue and, sometimes, magic. In our shows, we strive to inhabit that world and to play characters who go through similar adventures and emotions. We don’t know in advance if the show will be a romantic comedy or a tragedy, or some of both. But we do know that it will be completely improvised. Each show is unique, the audience joining us on the journey to discover what story lies in wait for our merry players…huzzah!”
