    An Improvised Musical Comedy

    Fri., Apr 27, 2018

    7 pm

    Every song is fresh. Every scene is new. Every night is different. It’s all improvised and it’s all funny.

    The hilarious Broadway’s Next Hit Musical is the only unscripted theatrical awards show. 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 its 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. 

    Under the direction of improv veterans Rob Schiffmann and Deb Rabbai, TheaterWeek hailed the show as “brilliant” and The New York Post called Broadway’s Next Hit Musical “remarkable.”

    The cast of BNHM will conduct an improv workshop with Knoxville Students!

Through the decades, members have changed but the group’s popularity lives on. They’ve performed on several TV shows including The Barbara Mandrell and the Mandrell Sisters, the beloved American classic, Hee Haw and the prestigious Arthur Godfrey Talent Show in 1954. The group created Grammy-award winning Blackwood Brothers albums in the early 1980s. The group continues to tour regularly and brings the word of Christ through song, to both believers and non-believers alike. The quartet has had the privilege of performing with Willie Nelson and many other great artists.
