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

BOB LEGGETT certified reviewer June 11, 2013
A rare treat - to be surrounded by some of these stars of television and film, spending an evening performing improv games. As is the situation with improv, every show is different, as the audience selects the activity, emotion, location, and background for each game. The result is a fun-filled hour of hilarity, joviality, rapture and enough laughs to make your sides hurt. ... full review
MICHAEL FARROW certified reviewer June 12, 2013
As expert a troupe of improvisers as you'll find anywhere in America. They have not only remained true to Viola Spolin's craft, they have improved upon it (a "Yes, And" adjustment?). ...I heartily recommend it to anyone who wants to see improv in its truest form, performed by professional actors at the top of their form. --- michael david farrow ... full review
ELLEN LEVINE certified reviewer June 12, 2013
Our phones and emails hacked by the government..... crazy people getting guns online and shooting innocent people.... fires burning....the 405 forever jammed.... but The Spolin Players get you to FORGET ALL THAT (at least for an hour) and LAUGH, LAUGH, LAUGH. It's the best remedy. Highly recommended for all your ills! Grab a seat, take a breath - and have a GREAT time!... full review
PAUL EIDING certified reviewer June 14, 2013
Spolin Players are an incredibly skilled improvisational ensemble. Watching them create scenes from audience suggestions is truly a masterclass in how to do improv. They build and share each scene. They play skillfully with each other, from two person scenes to everyone on stage at the same time. Their dubbing is superb and hysterical. I loved watching them create and I loved that it is made up equally of male and female performers. Such wonderful elastic faces, great voices, and amazing minds. Oh, and the improvisational songs, wow, what talent and bravery. The two sisters in Paris was so good and never to be repeated. The Spolin Players show is great entertainment and damn funny!
