Improvised Star Trek at iO Theater!

The cast of the Improvised Star Trek podcast return for another run of live performances! Beginning as a live show back in 2009, Improvised Star Trek returns to the stage at its original home, iO Theater. Give us a suggestion for a title of a Star Trek episode that has never existed. Then sit back and enjoy hilarious sci-fi comedy and delicious “Romulan” Ale. Wear your Star Trek costume and participate in our costume contest judged and hosted by members of the crew of Improvised Star Trek. With comedy, prizes, guests, and other surprises, it would be illogical to miss Improvised Star Trek LIVE!

Since April of 2011, Improvised Star Trek has taken suggestions submitted on Twitter and Facebook to create fully improvised Star Trek audio podcasts detailing the further adventures of the crew of the U.S.S. Sisyphus, with original characters created by the cast and set in the Next Generation era. New episodes are posted every other week and are available for download on iTunes and at www.theimprovisedstartrek.com right now!

Starring: Griffen Eckstein, Sean Kelley, Michael Maltz, Irene Marquette, Chris Rathjen, Mary Cait Walthall, Nick Wagner, Matt Young

Cost: $5 ticket plus $3 service fee = $8

Improvised Star Trek at iO Theater!

I saw their show recently and had a blast! Whether you are a Star Trek fan or just a lover of great improvising, this show will not disappoint!

This also coincidentally happens to be my birthday, so lets make it extra special!

      I think I saw you, but I was so busy chatting with everyone that I never found out for sure. We were a group of 8 sitting in the 3rd row.

    Ok, after talking to a couple of people, let's meet at Salt & Pepper Diner (which is right next door) starting at 10pm. We can get a snack and a drink and chat as people gather, then we can go to the theater at 11:15pm or so. Let me know if you intend to meet Nina (Urbanfirefly) and I at the Diner.

      The Salt and pepper diner around 10:30ish wouldn't be a bad idea. I won't actually wear pointy ears or my tricorder, though. (GRIN) Not that there's anything wrong with that!

    Sorry to miss this, but not sorry I'll be on Gulf coast, hopefully soaking up some warmth.

    I was at iO about two weeks ago. Love this place. I hope I can make it!

    Yeah!!! Alright!!! I forgot to mention that I won a poster at the trivia contest. They asked, "Who was Kirk's baby mama?", and I immediately said Dr. Carol Marcus, yes I even said Doctor! It was an Avengers poster, but I won it all the same! Would anyone like to meet up before the show? There are tons of bars and restaurants around!

      A meetup before the show is a great idea! I don't know the area quite that well - can you recommend a nice, possibly not too crowded, bar? A bar is best so that we don't have to reserve seats like a restaurant would want. And congrats on the poster!

    Sounds like fun, but I'll be in Texas

    That sounds like fun Leejay! I've updated the meetup a bit and have announced it.
