The University of Hawai`i at Hilo Performing Arts Center will open the 2013-2014 season on Thursday, September 26th at 7:30 p.m. with Broadway’s Next H!t Musical.

“Every song is fresh. Every scene is new. Every night is different. It’s all improvised and it’s all funny,” said Center Manager Lee Dombroski.

Broadway’s Next H!T Musical is the only unscripted theatrical awards show. Six master improvisers gather made up, hit song suggestions from the audience and create a spontaneous evening of music, humor, and laughter. The audience votes for their favorite song and watches as the cast turns it into a full- blown improvised musical – complete with memorable characters, witty dialogue, and plot twists galore.

The show is under the direction of Rob Schiffman, a professional improviser and musician, and Deb Rabbai, an actor, improviser, singer and voiceover artist, who have proudly witnessed it’s progress over the last two decades into the hilarious hit it is today. This show has consistently been hailed as “brilliant” by TheaterWeek magazine.

“Don’t miss the next great American musical – it’s coming to Hilo – and you’re writing it,” Dombroski said.
