What is Shitzprobe???
Where Broadway and Improv Comedy Meet
Welcome to the opening (and sadly the closing) night of a brand new musical! What’s it called? You get to choose!Shitzprobe is a fully improvised musical with a cast that features a Broadway guest star throwing away the script and improvising for the first time. Every song, lyric, line of dialogue and dance move is totally improvised, accompanied by a live band who are also making up everything as they go. Each performance of Shitzprobe is the premiere of a never-before-seen musical, and YOU help create it - each show is based on an audience member’s suggestion of a title of a musical that doesn’t yet exist. Past audiences have helped to create shows like “Millenials and Margaritas”, “Can She Even Walk in Heels?”, and “Moby and the Incredible Dick”.Past guests include Jackie Hoffman (Feud, Hairspray), Isabelle McCalla (The Prom, Shucked), Barrett Wilbert Weed (Heathers, Mean Girls), and Broadway stars from Into The Woods, Wicked, Come From Away, Waitress, Company, and more. The rest of the cast features the best musical improvisers in New York City, who have been seen on Comedy Central, Adult Swim, at the world-renowned Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and in shows such as Wicked, The Prom, Groundhog Day, Freestyle Love Supreme, and Hair.
