HERE the Musical is a feat of improvisation – a two person, fully improvised musical play. In the HERE the Musical 2/29 show, 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. Music improvised by David Schmoll!

Tara DeFrancisco and Rance Rizzutto began touring this show well before moving to Columbus to start The Nest Theatre. They have toured this show to 60+ cities in 22+ countries! Bring your friends out to experience HERE for yourself.

Your secrets…our show! The Anonymous 2/28 show takes true, pre-written, anonymous personal stories submitted from our cast & guests, then those stories lead to conversation and comedic improvisation done by the cast.

For improv connoisseurs, it’s a slice of hit shows Storyteller/Living Room, part ComedySportz Blind Date, and part “Mortified”; For those just looking for a great time – This show promises something for everyone.
