University Park, IL-(ENEWSPF)- Governors State University Center for Performing Arts opens its 2012-2013 season with “Broadway’s Next H!T Musical,” an award-winning comic evening of music, humor, and laughter. Direct from smash-hit engagements in New York and several theater festivals, “Broadway/s Next H!T Musical” comes to GSU Center for one performance only on Friday, September 21, at 8 p.m.

The hysterical “Broadway’s Next H!T Musical” is the only unscripted theatrical awards show. Master improvisers gather made-up, hit song suggestions from the audience and create a musical comedy on the spot. 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.

Every song is fresh. Every scene is new. Every night is different. It’s all improvised and it’s all funny. TheaterWeekhailed the show as “brilliant” and the New York Post called “Broadway’s Next H!T Musical” “remarkable.” Time Out New York announced, “At last! A musical of, for, and by the people…That’s entertainment!” and the New York Times called the show “hilarious.”

“Broadway’s Next H!T Musical,” under the direction of improv veterans Rob Schiffman and Deb Rabbai, has been seen recently at The Triad, Tribeca Film Festival, and at the New York Musical Theater Festival, among many other venues.
