This event is 21 AND OVER. All Mainstage shows are 21 AND OVER. All DCT Shows are ALL AGES. If you are more than 5 MINUTES late to a Mainstage show, your seats may be released.
OPENING NIGHT: THE IMPROVISED MUSICAL!® is exactly that: a Broadway-style musical that is made up on the spot, based on audience suggestion. So every night is the `Opening Night’ of a musical that has never been seen! Now in it’s twelfth year, Opening Night: The Improvised Musical!® is thrilled to continue as the show LAWeekly called, “almost too slick to be completely improvised”. It is, by the way—completely improvised. Led by Director Shulie Cowen, Opening Night: The Improvised Musical!®’s cast combines the Chicago-style improvisation of the iO and The Second City with the Broadway stylings of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Gilbert & Sullivan, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Bob Fosse, and many more. Occasionally, they even borrow the 76 trombones from The Music Man. They usually give them back. Cast film and television credits include; My Secret Girlfriend, The Informant!, Factory, Wild and Out, Reno 911!, You Don’t Mess With The Zohan, Scrubs, and World Cup Comedy.
“Come back again and again — you’ll laugh every time.” (LA Weekly Best of 2010)
