Donny's Skybox Theatre Presents MANSICAL, 3/4-4/15

MANSICAL will be performing in Donny's Skybox Theatre, 1608 N Wells St., 4th Floor every Sunday night at 8:00pm from March 4th – April 15th, 2012. 

Inspired by one audience suggestion, the charming men of MANSICAL improvise 45 minutes of scenes and songs that are driven by massive amounts of agreement, musicality, dancing, rapping and wigs. Each MANSICAL show is an original improvised form unto itself and is without a traditional beginning/middle/end plot.

MANSICAL has performed in several comedy venues across Chicago and a few across the country including The Magnet Theatre in New York City and The White Rabbit Cabaret in Indianapolis.

MANISCAL was thrilled to learn this week that they were nominated for an INNY 2012 Award under the category "Best in Musical Improv."

MANSICAL is led by the Musical Direction of Stephanie McCullough and features: Matthew Van Colton, Chris DeRose, Brian Finlay, Michael Girts, Zephian Michaels, Israel Pederson & Andrew Ritter.

MANSICAL includes 4 faculty members from the Second City Training Center's Music Improvisation Program who have performed in thousands of scripted and improvised shows including credits like Rush Limbaugh! The Musical, Jewsical The Musical, The Dude Abides The Musical, Improviser! A Musical Sketch Comedy Revue, BEST MUSICAL, Infinite Sundaes, The Best Church of God, The Cupid Players and Reset List.
