I was hanging out with my old friend, Julie Poteet, last night and during the course of conversation we started remembering some of our favorite iMusical moments. We were both in the opening run of iMusical last year. Which was very excited because DC had never done a long term improv musical show before and Travis Pleoger (who directed I Eat Pandas and Chicago City Limits) wanted to get something started with WIT. We auditioned and both started having alot of fun together. One particular show we both loved was when Colin Murchie (as a bear) ate my character who was suppose to have a romantic meeting with Julie's character later in the show. So, instead of letting that love interest die i sang a song to Julie from Colin's stomach. It was really fun and unexpected and that is what you get every performance of iMusical every time.
Tonight iMusical comes onstage at 8pm at the WIT theater (Flashpoint) in Chinatown with another completely made up musical on the spot. Yes, songs. Yes, lyrics. Yes, characters and music. All on the spot. It really is a unique and incredibility delightful (oh!) show. They have four more weeks of shows before they perform again in 2008. So check them out while you can.
