MUSIC AND IMPROV TOGETHER
First Time or Fan? is a musical theatre/musical improv hybrid show and the winner of Under the Gun's 2nd Annual Tournament of Shows. Every week, we pick a real musical. We then ask musical theatre performers to come in and sing a few songs from that musical. Then, musical improvisers who have never previously seen that musical attempt to recreate it--using only the songs they've just heard as inspiration. The musical improvisers perform a fully improvised 30 minute musical. They are our "First Timers," and the musical theatre performers are our "Fans." Hence, the name First Time or Fan?
