Whose Line Is It Anyway meets The Tony Awards

Every song is fresh. Every scene is new. Every
night is different. It’s all improvised and it’s all funny.
The New York Times calls Broadway’s Next Hit
Musical “Hilarious!” Time Out NY says, “At last! A
musical of, for, and by the people.”

Broadway’s Next Hit Musical is the only unscripted
theatrical awards show. Have you heard of the Tony Awards? Well, Broadway’s Next Hit Musical is … The PHONY Awards! The audience members write down made up song titles and our master improvisers gather these suggestions and present them as “nominated songs” for this coveted award. We create spontaneous scenes and songs filled with great dancing, catchy melodies, and tons of laughter. The audience votes for their favorite song and watches as the cast turns that song into a full-blown improvised musical, complete with memorable characters, witty dialogue, and plot twists galore.
