Rhyme and Punishment: 

From CATS and A CHORUS LINE to HEATHERS and BIG FISH, Rhyme & Punishment has mastered the art of improvising feature length shows in the various styles of Broadway's favorite musicals. This highly talented cast features actors and improvisers from across the country, currently residing as a house team for Chicago's MCL Music Improv Night. This team impresses audiences week after week with their strong characters, outlandish story lines and mastery of musical theater in every genre. Ready to take their show on the road, the cast was honored to receive a Tony nom for "Best Improvised Musical." That last part isn't true and if you really loved Broadway you would know that, but they are excited to take their show on the road.

Cate Blanchett's Caftan:

Musical Improv. Murderous Intrigue. Middle-aged ladies. Veteran musical improvisers Matthew Van Colton, Jeff Bouthiette, and Brad Kemp bring you all of these and more in this musical riff on Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Dolores Claiborne, and Air Bud: Golden Receiver.

Cast: Matthew Van Colton, Jeff Bouthiette, and Brad Kemp (MD).
