This exciting and highly praised show is a completely improvised two-act modern Broadway style musical - the first of its kind! Although spontaneous musical theater sounds nearly impossible to accomplish, MUSICAL! the musical has delighted both critics and audiences since 1998, when it first opened at the Royal George Theatre in Chicago, IL. Since then, MUSICAL! has played across the country, including separate productions in Boston and Nashville.

MUSICAL! the musical expands comedy boundaries by pioneering a new art form of music, theater, and improvisation. It's the ultimate marriage of two wonderful forms: the involving, emotional world of the modern Broadway musical, and the exciting, creative, and outrageous form of improv!

By requesting a suggestion of a familiar story, movie, or person's life, these tremendously talented actors/singers/improvisers take you on a journey of discovery and hilarity which both engages and astounds. MUSICAL! has performed hundreds and hundreds of full length musicals - all with original music, lyrics, characters, dialogue, and choreography created on the spot.

See what the critics and audiences (including corporations, schools, and private entertainment groups) have said about this smash hit. Take a look at some video highlights, and a list of the cast's favorite MUSICAL! musicals. Check out MUSICAL! the musical during its theatrical runs, or book the show for a truly unique and unforgettable special event!
