It's clear that these performers LOVE what they're doing, and who doesn't LOVE an hour of Improv games? This is a great way to spend your afternoon or evening -- Caution though, these are seasoned veterans. You will have fun, you will laugh, and you will have a great time. Get your tickets today, this is one of those shows that's going to sell fast. Thanks for the good time today guys!... full review

Took in the June 22 show and was able to grab the front row. What a treat to see the original Spolin players on stage and to watch them perform the games so expertly! From the ensemble games to the two and three person games, the audience was treated to top notch entertainment that was equal parts: funny, engrossing and pretty darn amazing. I liked the games that called on the players to make the audience "see" what was happening on stage. "Dubbing", "Sound Scape" and "Transformation" were great vehicles for this which, from what I understand, is one of the major tenets of Viola Spolin's work. In order to this, the player has to "see" the space and the objects they are working with and within in order for the audience to see them. Well... full review

The Spolin Players are a dynamic, diverse, and hilarious group. You might expect that much. But, what sets them apart is their authenticity. They fully commit to the unscripted and the "now". There is nothing canned here. The energy is electric. Their work brings that rare feeling one gets when seeing a performance that is truly alive and on the edge. These are intuitive and gifted artists who know how to take risks onstage. They are alive and present to the moment-to-moment uncertainty of each scene, so much so, that the audience's laughter is experienced as a wonderful surprise, a gift. The Players skillfully surrender and deliver exciting, intelligent, beautiful and poignant comedy. ... full review

You won't find a better more playful and creative use of an hour than the Spolin Players. Their history together show in the ease with which they collaborate. It's also nice to see them making each other laugh. A little bit of everything: acrobatics, musical challenges, wordplay and an extraordinary use of international languages. You won't be sorry and you will definitely want more.... full review
MAX SCHAFER certified reviewer June 24, 2013
These top Hollywood professionals have been working together since the 80s. They are the top in their profession and seem to be at their peek of brilliance. Their shows always sell out, and they never seem to ever have an off- night. Let this be the antidote for all the years of bad improv you have had to endure. You'll say yes, and... thank you.... full review
