New York City’s award-winning improvisational musical comedy awards show is an unscripted mock theatrical awards show.

The MACC reports that each show is unique: master improvisers gather made up, hit song suggestions from the audience and create a spontaneous evening of music, humor, and laughter.

Each improvised song is performed and the audience votes for their favorite.

That, in turn, leads to the spontaneous creation of a full and fully improvised musical based on the winner and performed by the entire cast.

In a feat that would make most actor’s blood run cold, each fully spur-of-the-moment two-act musical comes complete with memorable characters, witty dialogue, and plot twists.

The New York Times hailed the show as “Hilarious!” and The New York Post wrote that it was “Remarkable… Something that few improvisers anywhere have the talent, experience and wit needed to successfully do.”

Under the direction of improv veterans Rob Schiffman and Deb Rabbai, Broadway’s Next H!t Musical has been seen at The Triad, Tribeca Film Festival, and at the New York Musical Theater Festival, among many others.

Start dreaming up your challenging song titles now, as you’ll have no one to blame but yourself if you don’t enjoy Saturday’s 7:30 p.m. show.

Tickets are $12, $28 and $35, half-price for kids 12 & under, and with a discount available to MACC annual donors.
