Up Comedy Club to Present Porchlight's BEST MUSICAL! A COMPLETELY IMPROVISED MUSICAL COMEDY
UP Comedy Club has announced its remount of Porchlight Music Theatre's smash hit, BEST MUSICAL! A Completely Improvised Musical Comedy. BEST MUSICAL! was developed in "Off the Porch" Porchlight Music Theatre's new works development program. BEST MUSICAL! will run October 2 - November 6, 2013 at the UP Comedy Club, located at 230 W.

Votes are cast for "Best Song" and the cast returns for Act II with a fully improvised and hilarious musical comedy (complete with costumes & choreography) around the very song the audience selected.
