BRING YOUR CREATIVE JUICES TO FAIRFIELD UNIVERSITY
Imagine a full fledged musical on stage that is being created right before your eyes, with your suggestions. Never before seen and unlikely to ever be seen again, this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime entertainment event.
Get your ideas ready, for the orchestra will be tuning up and the actors are about to take their places for Broadway’s Next H!t Musical one night only at Fairfield University's Regina Quick Center on Friday, September 19 at 8 p.m.
Talk about new and different and thinking on your feet. This is improvisation with music, not something you see every day or that just any performer is capable of designing. Under the direction of improv veterans Rob Schiffman and Deb Rabbai, Broadway’s Next H!t Musical was hailed as “brilliant” by TheaterWeek. The New York Times calls it “Hilarious!”, and The New York Post described the show as “remarkable.” Time Out NY says “At last! A musical of, for, and by the people.” Broadway's Next Hit Musical has been seen recently at The Triad, Tribeca Film Festival, and at the New York Musical Theater Festival, among many others, presenting improvisational musical comedy theater at its very best.
Tickets ($35, 40, 45, students at Fairfield University $5) are available through the Quick Center Box Office: (203) 254-4010, or toll-free 1-877-ARTS-396. (1-877-278-7396). Tickets can also be purchased online at www.quickcenter.com.
Let your imagination run wild, the more insane the funnier, and let this comedy troupe earn its medals for 85 minutes of unbridled humor. P.S. Apparently my imagination was in high gear for tonight at the show my suggestion for a song "Kermit the Frog Romances Miss Piggy" was drawn out of the fish bowl of ideas, at random, and used to create a musical about "The Monster in the Closet." The
talented troupe expanded on my idea as well as three others and Kermit and the Monsters was selected as the full fledged musical with choreography by Bob (not Fosse). You had to be there!
