Improv doesn't have to be a cross between sketch comedy and stand-up comedy, improv can also be theater. Improvised theater is what the Un-Scripted Theater Company specializes in. They do improvised musicals, plays, comedies, dramas, Shakespeare shows, even an improvised movie show where the audience is watching a movie screen while actors were outside filming the movie they were watching! Sure their shows are usually funny, but they're also touching and well acted. I wish all theater productions were as alive as ones that are improvised. By not having a preset script, actors never seem to be just reciting lines. It's nice to see improv move in a more theatrical direction. And, with a theater that's only holds about 50 seats, even in the back row you still have good seats. Plus their concessions are super cheap: Free popcorn and beers that are as cheap as if a happy hour was having a happy hour. The Un-Scripted Theater Company really puts on unique, only in San Francisco, kinds of shows.
