The Playground Theater is one of the country’s only not-for-profit improv theaters. It's a completely artist-led theater company and features all forms of improv on weeknights. Tickets are $5 & $10.
The programming is often experimental and incredibly hit or miss, but there's no denying the youthful, infectious energy that pervades the place.
