Hit and Run / Broadway's Next H!t Musical
Based on the suggestion of a title from the audience, the performers of Denver's Hit and Run: Musical Improv create an unscripted Broadway-style comedy musical from scratch. HNR features live accompaniment, dancing, soaring ballads, and more emotional outbursts than Rent and The Phantom Of The Opera combined. Sondheim and Lloyd Webber take years to write a musical, but HNR creates a brand new one every week!
Hit and Run: Musical Improv is: Chris Gallegos, Kat Atwell, Mark Shonsey, Max Schwartz, Meredith Winfield, Natasha Gleichmann, Paul Orosz, Shannon Wood Rothenberg, Stephen Wilder and Ted Kuenz (accompanist).
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 H!T Musical "Hilarious!" Time Out NY says "At last! A musical of, for, and by the people."
Broadway's Next H!T Musical is the only unscripted theatrical & musical awards show. Master improvisers gather made up song suggestions from the audience and one by one present their nominated scene and song for the Broadway's Next Hit Musical Award. After all cast members have presented, the audience votes for their favorite and in the 2nd half, the cast then uses that winning song to create a full blown improvised musical complete with memorable characters, witty dialogue, plot twists galore and the recreation of the winning song. That's rightthe improvisers have to REMEMBER their improvised song.
BNHM has been seen recently at The Triad, Tribeca Film Festival, at the New York Musical Theater Festival and on tour all over America. Under the direction of improv veterans Rob Schiffman and Deb Rabbai, TheaterWeek has hailed the show as "brilliant" and The New York Post called Broadway's Next H!T Musical "remarkable."
Don't miss the next great American musical it could be written in part by YOU!
