Coming soon to Maui: "Broadway's Next H!t Musical!"
New York City's award-winning improvisational musical comedy awards show by that title, "Broadway's Next H!t Musical," will be presented at Maui Arts & Cultural Center (The MACC) on Saturday, Sept. 28, in the Castle Theater at 7:30 p.m.
The hysterical "Broadway's Next H!T Musical" is an unscripted, theatrical awards show. The premise of the show is to create a brand new, fully improvised musical comedy every time, with every lyric, melody and movement! It's an energetic, on-the-spot creative comedy--and totally funny! What's more, it's the audience who decides what goes into the show.
Master improvisers will gather made up, hit song suggestions from the audience and create a spontaneous evening of music, humor and laughter.

Audience members vote for their favorite song and watch as the cast turns it into a full blown improvised musical--complete with memorable characters, witty dialogue and plot twists galore.
Every song is fresh. Every scene is new. Every night is different. It's all improvised and it's all funny!
The New York Times hailed the show as "Hilarious!" Time Out New York said, "At last! A musical of, for, and by the people."
