Improvised History is an entirely improvised show based on what we remember about History.

We’ve got a corrupt republican government, disconcerting wealth inequality, a liberalizing culture clashing with conservative backlash, and the rise of fascism globally - that’s right, it must be the 20’s! Let us entertain you with mid-atlantic accents, inaccurate slang, and probably too many scenes set in a speakeasy. We’ve got it all - labor movements, technological advances, corporate fat cats, and more - and it’s all made up on the spot by a passage the audience selects from a book!

Improvised History shows at the Democracy Center are “pay what you want.” We do this show because we love history and improv; we’re not in it to make money. If you’d like to support us, we welcome contributions either in cash after the show, or through eventbrite (see the optional donation line when purchasing a ticket). While advance reservation of tickets is not required, if the show does sell out, preference will be given to those who have reserved a ticket.

For additional information, find us online at improvhistory.com, on twitter @improvhistory, or by email at info@improvhistory.com.

A note from the venue on accessibility:

The Democracy Center is partially wheelchair accessible, no accessible bathroom on site. The Mandela, Parks, and Chavez rooms are accessible, but the Library is not. Wheelchair users are welcome to use the accessible restroom at Daedalus while we plan our improvements for bathroom accessibility. To reach that bathroom, exit the ramp and turn left on Bow St, at the next building (Daedalus) use their accessible entrance and their restroom will be on the right. More information at: democracycenter.org/accessibility. Contact info@democracycenter.org or 617 492 8855 as needed.
