The cast of “Broadway’s Next H!t Musical” will put on a one-of-a-kind unscripted mock awards show that is high energy and humor-packed.
The show will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Bromeley Family Theater in Blaisdell Hall. Ticket prices are $22 for the public, $18 for Faculty/Staff, $10 for students and $5 for Pitt- Bradford Students.
Co-directors Deb Rabbai and Rob Schiffmann will have their crew put on a show that will not be anything viewers have seen before, and no one will ever see it again because it will be 100 percent improvised.
When audience members arrive, they can expect to be given a slip of paper where they may let their minds run wild with any song title imaginable. Although it would be easy to pick a classic such as “Over the Rainbow,” performers from “Broadway's Next H!t Musical” encourage show goers to be creative. Spectators will then drop their titles into a fish bowl and wait to see if theirs will be featured later in the night. Throughout the mock awards show a few slips of paper will randomly be selected and the master improv actors will create a whole number based off of the given title.
“Bottom line, ‘Broadway’s Next Hit Musical’ is a lot of fun,” writes Broadway World.com. “As the emcee Greg Triggs pointed out, if you don't enjoy the show there is no one to blame but your fellow audience members. So make up a good song title!”
Rabbai and Schiffmann’s team have been perfecting their ability to improvise for the past 15 years all across the country. Observers can expect plot twists, dynamic characters, and humorous dialogue. The show has remained family friendly.
