How it Works
The audience shouts out a title of a musical that has never been performed before. Accompanied by a full band, the first title that the group hears becomes the title and theme for that evening’s completely improvised 60 minute musical that BWC creates on the spot.
BWC has featured performers Stephnie Weir and Nicole Parker (MadTV), Rachel Dratch and Seth Meyers (SNL), Jack McBrayer (30 Rock), Garry Tallent (Bruce Springsteen and the E St Band), Mark Pender (Max Weinberg 7) to name a few.

BWC IS NY TIMES REVIEW! Critic's Pick!
25 Jan 2011
"How long does it take to write, polish and produce an epic, action-packed musical filled with battles, a geek chorus, supervillains and a theme about the relationship between, say, great power and great responsibility? The producers of “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” have said they needed years of planning and over three months of previews.
