On The Spot is a uniquely unpredictable musical that puts Broadway talent with our cream of the crop NYC improvisers to create a brand new musical...on the spot!

Here's how it works:

  • Our guest singers travel from near and far to perform their favorite songs.

  • Our cast of comedians are locked away in our castle, forbidden to know what the songs are!

  • The cast hears these songs for the first time, one by one, as the singers perform them.

  • In lieu of a one word suggestion, each song inspires our comedians to improvise a new scene,

  • Music, magic, and insanity happen right before our audience as songs and scenes alternate this way, creating a brand new book to our brand new musical!

On The Spot has been running Off-Broadway since 2015, and no two shows are ever the same. With new talent weekly and our ever-expanding roster, there is nowhere our show can’t go!

"The beauty of On The Spot, is its mixture of emotionally charged musical theater and down-to-earth timely humor" - OnStage
