HERE: the (Improvised) Musical 7/26 8:00pm
$16 online*/$20 at the door if not sold out
Ages 16+

HERE the Musical is a feat of improvisation – a two person, fully improvised musical play. In HERE the Musical, the players get one suggestion to inspire theme through an opening number, create characters and storylines inspired by the theme, and effortlessly weave the strings together to discover one piece. Not one ounce of music has been pre-conceived before the show begins.

Tara DeFrancisco and Rance Rizzutto began touring this show well before moving to Columbus to found The Nest Theatre. They have toured this show to 87 cities in 24 countries – and HERE has sold out over 150 shows in a row at The Nest! Bring your friends out to experience HERE for yourself around their worldwide touring.

Opening for HERE: Diversity Hire!

This will be LIVE at our 2643 N High St location
