Perez Reviews: 'Blank The Musical'

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesPerez Reviews

no title

If you're a fan of musicals and/or improv, then you will love the new and aptly titled Blank The Musical, currently running at our favorite off-Broadway venue, New World Stages.

The show is a fully improvised musical and the audience fills in all the blanks - title, lyrics and even helps out with the music.

A very funny (and young) cast bring to life this one-night-only musical and an equally skilled house band comes up with original music on the spot!

It's all super fun and playing for a limited time only.

We really enjoyed it and the only note we have - if it were to extend it's run - is that the audience interaction is limited to the first quarter of the show. After the setup is done so is the audience. It'd be really engaging and vicarious for all audience members if one or two were picked at certain parts to come up and be a part of the show.

We would not be surprised if a couple of these funny actors who can sing very well end up on Saturday Night Live.

So get your tickets to Blank The Musical and see them if they hit up your town or come back to NYC!

    Hey Piggy, is there any correlation between a 'Perez Reviews' article, "comped" tickets and the steady FALL of your IMBd ratings?

    The Internet and computer games have given audiences the expectation of interactivity. Traditional entertainment has included a passive audience, tho live shows always involved a bit more interaction. My older son, now 24, refuses to go to a traditional theater — whether for a play, music or a movie — because he is not allowed to talk in a theater. He was raised with this expectation of being able to participate in his entertainment.

    Traditional entertainment is going to have to adapt to the new generation.

    We saw ABC trying to get the audience more involved, using an app, in the Rising Star vocal competition this summer.

    Blank! goes a step farther, with the audience able to control some of the content of the show, using an app.

    I suspect that, going forward, a greater proportion of shows will have to increase their interactivity. As a result, people with improv training, like the performers in Blank! will be necessary, as their training allows them to be flexible to real time changes in the plot of their shows, without rehearsal. Blank! therefore appears to be a peep into the future of entertainment.

    While Blank! has closed at its current location, some of us are hoping it will find a new home soon.
