Don't get mad. Take 'em to court IRTE style!
Small Claims, directed by Curt Dixon (IRTE founding member, Gotham City Improv faculty and main stage co.), is a live improvised spoof of "reality" court shows, a hilarious cross between Judge Judy and Night Court!

ForSmall Claims, they will be joined by guest performer Brian Michael (Broadway Comedy Club, Blue Bloods CBS, Gotham City Improv main stage co.).  The group’s collective credits include off-Broadway theater, national tours and feature film.
