About the show

"Broadway's Next Hit Musical" is an improvised theatrical awards show (think "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" meets The Tony Awards). More…

Master improvisers gather made up, hit song suggestions from the audience and create a spontaneous evening of music, humor, and laughter. The audience votes for its favorite song and watches as the cast turns it into a full-blown improvised musical - complete with memorable characters, witty dialogue, and plot twists galore.

Delightful, Entertaining, Clever, Masterful, Hilarious

See it if You want a thoroughly enjoyable evening of silly improv about The Tony’s. If you’re a theatre fan even better but it’s not necessary.

Don't see it if If you hate that TV show Who’s Line Is It Anyway. It feels a bit like that with a theatre theme.

Also I’m generally not a fan of improv so I went into this with GREAT reser... Read more Read less

See it if Improv artists create musical theater scenes based on audience submitted titles. Brilliant, quick thinking & very funny. Amazing talent.

Don't see it if You want a rehearsed, well-refined show with perfect vocals (though these vocals are darned good for improv). You don’t like silly stuff.

Also I have to see this again. The winning song (of four) in this evening’s... Read more Read less

See it if You like musical improv. You're in the mood for a very silly spoof of awards shows. You enjoy audience participation.

Don't see it if You dislike improv. You prefer shorter improv: while Act 1 was well-done, Act 2 was unnecessary & slowed down the good momentum of the show.

Uneven, Fun, Entertaining, Quick-witted

See it if you like improv,both comic & musical; cast has to create a song & scenario from audience suggestions, on the spot.

Don't see it if 2nd act where they create a 1 act play of the most popular scene from act 1, wears a little thin. Still, some very funny moments.

Also The emcee ( Greg Triggs, at the performance I saw) is hilarious when h... Read more Read less
