My friend and I went to see this. She said "I thought the show was thoroughly entertaining and I loved how the performers were so creative and just fearless." To add, I was amazed by how well everyone was on on point. There's definitely a lot of chemistry on stage and one can tell that they absolutely love what they do :-) If you're looking for fun and laughs, this is a great show to attend.

BATS does a great job. I have no experience with other IMPROV performances in the city but I have been to BATS about 3/4 times. I enjoy the quickness of the show - moving from one thing to another and out by 9:30. I love Broadway so I was pleased...continued
Quotes & Highlights
“It’s [musicals’] built-in absurdities that make an event like BATS’ Spontaneous Broadway such frivolous fun, with its turn-on-a-dime improvised musical concepts and tunes.” —SF Weekly
BATS Improv, the Bay Area’s favorite improvisational theatre company, presents a night of improvised musical theatre.
As you arrive, each audience member gets to fill out slips of paper with song titles for “songs that have never been written.” The suggestions are collected and players then draw the titles out of a bowl…where they then improvise a completely original Broadway-style musical numbers based on the song title.
After ten songs, the audience votes on their favorite number. In the second half that song is used as the basis for a full-length improvised musical. It’s a night of improvised song and dance that is always an audience favorite.
The Spontaneous Broadway format was created by former BATS Company Player Kat Koppett in association with Freestyle Repertory Theatre in New York. It is performed at BATS with permission.
