MAGNET THEATER

You are making a reservation for:

The New York Musical Improv Festival
Sat Oct 19th, 2013 6:00pm
Price per ticket:
$10
Sorry, we don't accept reservations for Megawatt, Thursday Night Out, Mixers, or Class Shows.

Why? Well, Mixers and Class Shows are FREE.

And both Megawatt and Thursday Night Out are $7 for the whole night and ticketing is on a first come, first serve basis.

That said, we want you to come to these shows. Audience size fluctuates from show to show, but our theater is usually large enough to accommodate all our guests.

If you are receiving this message for a show that is not Megawatt, Thursday Night Out, a Mixer, or a Class Show then ALL ADVANCED RESERVATIONS have been claimed. This does NOT mean the show is sold out. 10 minutes prior to showtime, the box office will release all un-claimed reservations for stand-by patrons.

Yo Gloria is a rap improv team from Steel City Improv Theater in Pittsburgh, PA. This energetic new comedy show combines the structure of long-from musical improv with freestyle rapping. Based on the suggestion of the name of a mixtape, six improvisers create a montage of scenes representing individual tracks on the mixtape. Yo Gloria does all their own beatboxing.

"Big D and the Closers" takes your suggestion and turns it into a fully improvised musical! This dynamic ensemble has taken both their love of New York musical theater and Chicago style long-form improvisation and married them into spectacle that is not to be missed.

Our show consists of a simple 'Musical Harold', the format we used in the Musical Longform Class at the Second City Training Centre. We have a nonsense opener, where we experiment with different characters and genres we might play with during the set. The first three scenes are the longest, deepest,meatiest scenes followed by a vibrant 'Group Game' with lots of movement. Then the second round of scenes either take the game or a character from one of the first three scenes and expand the world and stories. Another group game follows and the ending explodes into either a madrigal, dance number or sometimes both!:)
