Your Life: The Musical
Ever wanted to see your name in lights? One lucky audience member will have his or her life story transformed into a hilarious and touching musical theater show, as if featured on Broadway (except with no script and no budget). It could be you!
One of the longest running improv shows in Pittsburgh, ""Your Life: The Musical"" is produced by Brett Bavar, Steve Gottschalk, Renee Rabenold, Kevin O'Brien, and Michelle Riches, and accompanied by Benjamin Saalbach-Walsh and Brian Riordan. Every first Friday of the month, these musical improvisers interview an audience participant at Arcade Comedy Theater and then improvise lyrics, melody, and choreography to perform their life story. Learn more on the Your Life Musical Improv Facebook and YouTube pages.
