This is the pure joy of improvisation, from people who know their craft. I've rarely had so much fun watching improv games. The surprises come in all different forms. They're like the Justice League of improv players, each with a special improv power. From uncanny sound effects, facial expressions, witty retorts, hilarious physicality. You'll have a great time.... full review

Improv as god/allah/zeus/the absolute/my grandmother meant it to be. Laughed? I cried. But, seriously, it could be longer. GO!... full review

I learned a lot tonight: Viola Spolin is the Magna Mater of play improv (cool). And this troupe is the last one to train directly with her (also extremely cool). And you can keep a fish in an astronaut's helmet if you live on Space Lab (who knew?). Yes, the night was delightfully funny. But it also made me happy because of this special connection from this amazing group of folks back to the source. We're REALLY lucky to have these guys at Fringe.... full review

This is a fantastic show. If you like funny, don't miss this show. It's a stage overflowing with comedy experts. I wish it had gone on longer. I was absolutely ready for act two. SEE IT! ASAP! Special kudos to the women in the cast. ... full review

Quite frankly wonderful stuff! Fromt he moment the Spolin Players step out on stage you know you are in good hands and the enthusiasm and joy on the faces of those of the cast not in a particular game is just as much of a sign of the tightness of this ensemble. Not just a great funny night out but also a masterclass. Comedy IS serious business.... full review

The purest form of Improv. Enthusiasm and creativity combined with well honed skills make for a deadly combination~ and a very Funny One.... full review
PHILLIP SPOLIN certified reviewer June 25, 2013
This is a theater adventure for the audience. It lifts your spirits and illuminates why the stage experience has been, is, and always will be a mystery. As the lady herself might say, "This ain't about jokes, honey." Improvisation at its finest, no on stage script writing, but spontaneous creativity. Each show is a master class done by a seasoned group who trust each other to stay focussed and play the game. ... full review
