Mae, March 17, 2018

I was a little nervous taking my 12 year old son, but he loved it. True, you never know what you're going to get, but I felt like they really tried to keep it classy. The actors were so talented and really engaged the audience. Friendly counter staff, no seat was bad. The only thing is that the lobby is pretty small, so it's crowded before the show.

Eileen, March 17, 2018

Loved it! Would definitely recommend to a friend. Also really appreciate that they let me use the nift for a special valentines show.

Had some difficulty redeeming my gift, because I didn't see on the voucher that I had to email the venue first - the print was so small! But customer service was wonderful and responded immediately, so it wasn't a problem at all.

Jill, April 7, 2017

Show was entertaining and the venue was convenient! First time to improv

Sarah, April 3, 2017

I didn't understand how to redeem at first, so I clicked the wrong button on Nift's reminder email. After I emailed Nift, I got a response within a few hours with detail instructions. When I emailed the vendor - ImproveBoston, they also responded and confirmed within a few hours. I am very pleased!
