The first group creativity project was a storefront cabaret--Chicago COMPASS, produced by Paul Sills and David Shepherd in 1955. It employed Barbara Harris, Mike Nichols, Elaine May and Shelley Berman, becoming the inspiration for Second City and Saturday Night Live.

Undergrads from the University of Chicago have performed a replica of the first COMPASS show—exactly 50 years ago to the day. The show featured the "Living News," a scenario play and audience suggestions.
