A Back Line

UCB House Team Auditions are underway and this year's hopefuls would do anything for laughs. But to get a chance at true improv stardom, they'll have to impress a hardened artistic director and find comedy in the scariest place of all: their pasts. A mostly written improv parody of the Broadway classic, "A Chorus Line.”

The Democratic Debates Featuring Mimi!

There’s plenty of great candidates at the 2020 democratic debates, but there’s only one Mimi! Mimi is you. She’s not a politician and is therefore the most likable person on stage by far. She’s an uninformed hyper-liberal millennial whose heart is in the right place, but her policy is a bit misguided. She wants universal healthcare, but only for women and cats. She supports a ban on fracking, but also a ban on knowing what fracking is. Bottom line, she cares less about making sense and more about feeling right. Watch Mimi debate Biden, Warren, Buttigieg, Harris, and all the rest. There will be incredible political impressions, parodies, video sketches and a live improvised debate!

Tell Me A Musical

Five actors and improvisers have exactly 60 minutes from overture to bows to sing and tell each other a full Broadway musical voted on by the audience but not known to performers until they hear the first notes of the show. Hosted by Alexandra Nader and Amanda Hunt, this show will have BFA holders screaming, “Don’t forget this part!” and musical theater novices smiling and tapping their toes.

Movies, Musicals, and Me

Set in a world where all musicals are movie adaptations, “MOVIES, MUSICALS, AND ME: AN EVENING WITH ME, HALPERT EVANS” is a career retrospective cabaret of Broadway star-- nay, legend-- Halpert Evans (played by Al Fallick). Halpert, his loyal accompanist, Courtney (Clark Baxtresser), and special guests perform for you songs from such fictional Broadway smashes as FORREST GUMP: THE MUSICAL, A QUIET PLACE: THE MUSICAL, THE SOCIAL NETWORK: THE MUSICAL, and more. In the words of Halpert, "Not to boast, but you will likely find the night to be both unforgettable and life-changing."

Encyclopedia Commedia

Encyclopedia Commedia is a fast-paced and hilarious exploration of all the knowledge in the world (more or less [markedly less]).

Come witness a ragtag assortment of bitter tastemakers, impure thought leaders, genuinely accomplished comedians and the occasional marching band as they pummel your cranium with information until you’re weeping with knowledge! (Make sure you pay attention—there just might be a quiz….)
