IRTE, the Improvisational Repertory Theatre Ensemble, is BACK with its third season of improvised shows. After another highly successful season of full houses, stand-out fest appearances and glowing praise, the NYC-based ensemble of comedy actors and writers returns with its own unique brand of original themed, character-driven improvisational shows performed in rep.

In 2013, IRTE enjoyed a residency at Gotham City Improv with occasional performances at the People's Improv Theatre. IRTE is currently in residence at The Producers Club in the heart of the New York City theatre district. Individual members' credits include performances at Upright Citizens Brigade, the Groundlings, the People's Improv Theatre, Gotham City Improv and the Magnet, as well as professional off-Broadway and regional theater and feature film productions (The Public Theater, The Kennedy Center, NY Theater Workshop).
