Dear Broadways Next Hit Musical Ticket Buyer,

We would like to first thank you for your patience during this unusual and trying time.  No one expected the dramatic impact COVID-19 would have on the Arts and Theater industry, let alone the society as a whole.  It has been a roller coaster of updates and changes.

We continue to work closely with agent to reschedule the performance for some time next year.  The artist remains interested in rescheduling the tour when information about the impact of COVID-19 becomes clearer.  As we are uncertain when those plans can be finalized, we are refunding all purchases to the original payment type. If there are any issues with your refund, a ticket office manager will be in touch.

Please note that our ticket vendors are experiencing a high volume of requests nationwide and we appreciate your patience during this process. We anticipate refund will be complete within two weeks. If you do not see a refund or are not contacted by a ticket office manager by September 17, 2020, please email performingarts@ohio.edu.

Thank you again for your patience and we can't tell you what your patronage means to us.

Broadway's Next Hit Musical


Whose Line Is It Anyway? meets The Tony Awards.

Every song is fresh. Every scene is new. Every night is different. It’s all improvised and it’s all funny.

The New York Times calls Broadway’s Next Hit Musical “Hilarious!” Time Out NY says “At last! A musical of, for, and by the people.”

Broadway’s Next Hit Musical is the only unscripted theatrical awards show. Have you heard of the TONY awards? Well, Broadway’s Next Hit Musical is…The PHONY Awards! The audience members write down made up song titles and our master improvisers gather these suggestions and present them as “nominated songs” for this coveted award. We create spontaneous scenes and songs filled with great dancing, catchy melodies, and tons of laughter. The audience votes for their favorite song and watches as the cast turns that song into a full blown improvised musical – complete with memorable characters, witty dialogue, and plot twists galore. BNHM has been seen recently throughout the United States and in New York City at The Triad Theater, The Tribeca Film Festival, and at The New York Musical Theater Festival, among many other locations.

Under the direction of improv veterans Rob Schiffmann and Deb Rabbai, TheaterWeek hailed the show as “brilliant” and The New York Post called Broadway’s Next Hit Musical “remarkable.”

Don’t miss the next great American musical – it could be written by YOU!
