Spontaneous Broadway

A fully improvised musical experience inspired by the audience

Doors Open @ 7:30pm, Event Starts @ 8:00pm

Spontaneous Broadway, where performers audition Broadway-style songs that they create on the spot based on song titles created by you, the audience. Vote for your favorite song and see it brought to life by our performers as they improvise an entire hour long musical around it! It's an experience that must be seen to be believed.

Act one? Audience members jot down never-before-sung titles of songs. Performers then improvise new Broadway musical numbers based on these titles of the top of their heads!

The second act?! A full-length improvised musical based on the audience's favorite song! SPONTANEOUS BROADWAY is a virtuoso piece that challenges improvisers and amazes audiences.

Created by Kat Koppett in association with Freestyle Repertory Theatre Co. in New York City, SPONTANEOUS BROADWAY is a fictional backers audition for a new Broadway musical then brought to the stage. TheatreWeek magazine named creator Koppett one of its unsung heroes of the year in honor of her invention of this exciting format!

Come early and grab a snack and a drink at our cafe!

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

There are no minimum age requirements for attendees. Typically shows are within a PG-13 rating. Our performances are improvised so the content is largely determined by the audience and the suggestions you give. We don't avoid "blue" humor but we try to be a little more creative with off-color suggestions than the obvious.
