Entirely based on audience suggestion and accompanied by a full band, the show is a roller-coaster ride of spontaneously choreographed dance numbers, rhyming verses and witty, jaw-dropping comedy. Each performance is the opening and closing night of that performance.
The audience shouts out a title of a musical that has never been performed before. Accompanied by a full band, the first title the group hears becomes the title and theme for that evening’s completely improvised musical.
