All's well that ends well with Improvised Shakespeare Company

See if all ends well when a bunch of guys in swashbuckler shirts make up a Shakespearean play on the spot. Rhyming couplets, too. The Improvised Shakespeare Company takes a suggestion from the audience and then runs with it, using well-placed anachronisms and sometimes even a song or a dance. Every show is different. See for yourself at 7:30 p.m. Friday at TECO Theater at the David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts, 1010 N MacInnes Place, Tampa. $25.75. (813) 229-7827.  strazcenter.org.
