Hilarious drama, serious comedy, using audience suggestions and willing volunteers to create characters, scenes, stories and songs. It's jazz theater.
Laughter: yes. Oreos: free. Improvised: fully.
Local improv troupe: Christopher Robert joins the cast this Saturday 5/10.

Great live entertainment after a late dinner or mid-bar-hop.
The shows are hilarious and completely improvised. If the guest is a local comic or musician, they may do a prepared bit at the top, but the rest is all improv: stories, songs, scenes from audience suggestions and occasionally using audience volunteers.
The Shelton is just a block from Union Square so BART and Muni will get you there. If you do drive in, the Sutter-Stockton garage is just two blocks away.
The website lists local restaurants so it's easy to plan an evening of dinner and laughs.
