The Revival is seeking Performers and Musicians for Blank! The Musical Directed by Co-Creator TJ Shanoff and performed at The Revival’s new South Loop theater.

About the Show:

The Revival is thrilled to bring Blank! The Musical to Chicago after a smash Off-Broadway run. Blank! The Musical is an entirely improvised musical that literally has no script and no book…only the talent of the performers on stage and the suggestions of a live audience!

Reviews from the Off-Broadway Run:

“Who needs a script? … Witty and likable … Credible, ludicrous and utterly familiar. Logic and harmony… on the spot and off the cuff. Improbably, ridiculous harmony.”
The New York Times

“Blank! The Musical is Extraordinary … a generous dose of human ingenuity and wit … they take improvisational comedy to a whole new level.”
The Source Magazine

“Blank! The Musical is the best musical you’ll both create and see in New York this holiday season … original and rib-tickling … like true comedy legends, they all make it look effortless.” – Broadway World
