Improv comedy and Broadway musicals collide in Boston's Unscripted Musical Project. The B.U.M.P. troupe takes a single suggestion from the audience and uses it to spontaneously create a fully improvised one-act musical spectacular. The heroes and villains invent hilarious lyrics and choreography to tell their story, while a full band dreams up a score to match. Because every show is totally unique, you never know just what B.U.M.P. will come up with, but with veterans of Chicago's legendary Second City and Improv Olympic, as well as ImprovBoston and Improv Asylum performing, you can be sure it won't be your typical Broadway musical.

The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them.
In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom (“Don’t quit your day job!”), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.
Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded 29 albums, including their latest, Barackin’ Around the Christmas Tree and Obama Mia! They’ve been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard 4 times a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.
