Broadway’s Next Hit Musical!

May 4 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Presented by The Clark Center

Sponsored by Central Coast Comedy Theater & RyLo Media Design


Every song is fresh.
Every scene is new.
Every night is different.
It’s all improvised
and it’s all funny!

Deb Rabbai, Producer “It’s something like you’ve never seen before, because nobody’s ever seen it before ”

The hilarious Broadway’s Next Hit Musical is the only unscripted theatrical awards show and stage musical. The cast is a team of some of the most talented and experienced improv comedians and musicians in New York City.

The first half of the show is a parody of a typical awards show. The cast takes fictional “hit song” suggestions from the audience. They improvise the lyrics and create an entirely spontaneous evening of music and laughs, competing against each other to create the audience’s favorite song of the evening.

The audience votes for a winner, and in the second half of the show, the cast turns the winner’s song into a full-blown improvised musical, complete with memorable characters, witty dialogue, and plot twists galore.

Broadway’s Next Hit Musical has been seen recently at The Triad, the Tribeca Film Festival, and the New York Musical Theatre Festival.

Under the direction of improv veterans Rob Schiffman and Deb Rabbai, the show was hailed by TheaterWeek as “brilliant”, and the New York post called Broadway’s Next Hit Musical “remarkable”.

Don’t miss the next great American musical – it could be written for you!

What fake “Hit Song” title will YOU suggest? (Can’t be an actual song title.)

Note: Only Family – friendly humor!
