BROADWAY'S NEXT HIT MUSICAL Adds Performances at 54 Below

NYC’s best improv performers use the audience’s made-up song titles to improvise three nominated songs for the Phony Awards, a parody award show.

54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club and 2022 Tony Awards® Honoree for Excellence in the Theatre, will welcome Broadway's Next Hit Musical back for three one-of-a-kind performances. The best improvisers in NYC are returning by popular demand after playing to sold out houses at 54 Below. Broadway's Next Hit Musical is an interactive and improvised comedy awards show and Broadway musical which makes for a different performance every night. The show announced three new performances on October 14, November 16, and January 15th. For reservations and information, visit 54below.com/NextHitMusical.

NYC's best improv performers use the audience's made-up song titles to improvise three nominated songs for the Phony Awards, a parody award show. These ad-libbed songs will include lyrics, melodies and choreography. Broadway's Gary Adler, composer of Altar Boyz and Music Director of Avenue Q and Next to Normal, creates the music on the spot. The audience gets to vote for which of the three songs will win the coveted Phony Award and then marvel at the hysterical musical of that winning song. Broadway's Next Hit Musical has toured extensively throughout the United States and around the world and has found a home at 54 Below.

Broadway's Next Hit Musical plays 54 Below (254 West 54th Street) October 14th, November 16th, and January 15th at 9:30pm. Cover charges are $35-$45 ($40-$51 with fees), with premium seats for $80 ($89.5 with fees). There is a $25 food and beverage minimum.
