The group has performed over 4,500 completely improvised musicals around the world. The audience suggest titles of a brand new musical, then vote on the title they want to see that night. Some favourite previous audience-suggested titles include Sue Grey Gardens, Kanye West Side Story, and Jesus Christ, Superstore.
It’s a roller coaster ride of off the cuff choreographed dance numbers, rhyming verses, and witty jaw dropping comedy. Each performance is its own opening and closing night, and by design every show is completely unique and a once in a life time premiere. Start thinking of your title now.
