Crisis: An Improvised Comic Book 

Crisis is a three-person troupe who developed a unique improv form that brings the pages of a superhero comic book to life. They performed their first show at the Magnet Theater in December 2014. Since then, they have performed regularly in New York City and have taken their signature set on the road to improv festivals in Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland.

They last performed on the OSIF stage in 2017, and we could not be happier to have them back!

The audience members of the world will look up and shout "Save us," and they'll look down and whisper "Yes, and."

CRISIS: AN IMPROVISED COMIC BOOK is half improv comedy and half superhero serial with the strengths of both worlds but none of their weaknesses. CRISIS asks their audience to be the Uncle Ben to their Peter Parker and inspire them… with a one-word suggestion the team uses to make up the extraordinary story of a brand new hero in the style of reading an issue of a comic book.
