Opening Night: Original Musical Theater Improv


Every Friday Night at 9
Original Musical Theater Improv
IO in Hollywood

This incredibly talented company of improvisers takes ideas from the audience and creates a totally original musical before your very eyes and ears. There is no more entertaining way to spend a Friday night!

OPENING NIGHT: THE IMPROVISED MUSICAL!® is exactly that: a Broadway-style musical that is made up on the spot, based on audience suggestion. So every night is the `Opening Night' of a musical that has never been seen! Now in it's fourteenth year, Opening Night: The Improvised Musical!® is thrilled to continue the show LA Weekly called, "almost too slick to be completely improvised". It is, by the way–completely improvised. Led by Director Shulie Cowen, Opening Night: The Improvised Musical!®'s cast combines the Chicago–style improvisation of the iO and The Second City with the Broadway stylings of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Gilbert & Sullivan, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Bob Fosse, and many more. Occasionally, they even borrow the 76 trombones from The Music Man. They usually give them back.
