Australia’s favourite improvised musical comedy team are back! With special all-star guests from the world of comedy and musical theatre. Hosted by showman extraordinaire Russell Fletcher and featuring the scorching improvised music of John Thorn on grand piano.
Inspired by made-up song titles from the audience, the cast pitch a new musical with a song from that show. The audience then votes to choose a brand new musical that is completely improvised before their eyes, complete with overture, costume changes, dance numbers and showstoppers. Every show totally different.
Spontaneous Broadway has won the special 'Palme D’Broadway' at the Melbourne Fringe, and sold out seasons at the Sydney Opera House, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Adelaide Cabaret Festival and The Famous Spiegeltent.
Season Special Guests:
Shaun Micallef, Colin Lane, Colette Mann, Fiona O'Loughlin, Matt Hetherington, Rusty Berther and John Chaplin-Fleming, (aka Scared Weird Little Guys), Mike McLeish (aka KEATING!), Alan Brough, Wilbur Wilde, Jane Clifton, Mark Trevorrow (aka Bob Downe), and Matt Parkinson
With Australia’s favorite improvised musical comedy team: Russell Fletcher, Scott Brennan, Emily Taheny and Rik Brown, and John Thorn.
Every show is completely different as the improvising masters manage to turn audience song titles into a full musical.
