Boston's only troupe
specializing in creating completely improvised, full-length musicals.
Each of their shows begins by taking a few inputs from the audience
that provide the seed for that night's new show. The troupe then spins
out a full-length, two-act musical right before your very eyes. All
the dialogue, choreograpy, lyrics and melodies - are made up on the
spot by the cast. Recent titles have included, Sopranos!, Crouching
Tiger, Hidden Dragon!, All About Eve! and The 'Psyco' Holiday Musical!.
NOMTI - New Opera &
Musical Theatre Initiative
The New Opera and
Musical Theater Initiative (NOMTI) nurtures and supports New England
writers and composers of musical theater and opera in the creation of
new works. We also strive to strengthen audience interest in new musicals
and operas by presenting works in progress.
is a diverse group of Boston-area playwrights who share a commitment
to the cooperative development of quality theater.
The StoryFoundry was started
in hopes of giving playwrights a place to list their works and start
a community. Our goal is to provide a free home where people who write
plays, or others who are looking for new works to present, can come
and share ideas and give the opportunity for some of the great works
that are being created to see the light of day and hopefully, the footlights
of a stage as well. This is place to share ideas, meet new artists and
hopefully give some very deserving people the exposure that they need
to get their scripts seen and produced.
