MUSICAL! the musical


musicalnanakimboMUSICAL! the musical is the ultimate marriage of two wonderful art forms: the involving, emotional world of the modern Broadway musical, and the exciting, creative, and outrageous form of improv! This amazing and highly praised show 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 at theaters across the country, performing nearly a thousand full length musicals – all with original music, lyrics, characters, dialogue, and choreography created on the spot.
