BEST MUSICAL! Returns 2/6 to Stage 773

Porchlight Music Theatre has announced the return of BEST MUSICAL! A Completely Improvised Musical Comedy, conceived by Second City veteran Matthew Loren Cohen, at Stage 773, 1225 W. Belmont Ave, February 6 - March 6, Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. Single tickets are $15, student discounts are $10 and group discounts available. All tickets are available at stage773.com, porchlightmusictheatre.org or by phone at 773.327.5252.

In spring 2012, Porchlight combined forces with some of Chicago's hottest improv and musical stars, threw in some audience participation, added a bouncy piano beat and debuted BEST MUSICAL! A Completely Improvised Musical Comedyto sold out houses and critical and audience acclaim. Time Out Chicago raved "BEST MUSICAL! is outrageous, uproarious and kinda brilliant." and Chicago Theatre Addict said "BEST MUSICAL! turns weary Wednesday nights into lyrical lunacy."

BEST MUSICAL!takes audiences to the "Bestie Awards" ceremony where the cast performs the "Best Song from a Musical" nominees from a grab bag of audience-suggested titles. The audience votes for their favorite song as performed in Act 1 and comes back after intermission for an entirely improvised musical comedy with lights, costumes and fully improvised music and choreography featuring the "Bestie" winning song. Each performance guarantees a completely different musical comedy with completely new songs every week.

The company includes Matthew Loren Cohen, on piano, plus cast members from The Second City, iO and The Annoyance stages, Kate Cohen, Rebecca Hanson, Randall Harr, John Hartman, Colette Hawley, Tim Ryder and Kevin Sciretta. Pat McKenna directs and Meghan Teal is stage manager.
