The Revival is a theater and education company that was founded at the birthplace of improvisation in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood. The Revival uses improvisation - and its underlying skill set - to affect personal, professional and social change both at home in Chicago and around the world.




Improv workshops are an innovative way to address critical workplace objectives. No longer a tool used exclusively by performing artists, improv workshops lead participants through a challenging, fun and immersive curriculum in a safe, collaborative environment.
