Improvised Musical: ‘One of the best musical improv troupes on the circuit’ – ****1/2 The Reviews Hub
From the minds behind Brighton improv titans Off the Cuff and Blanket Fort comes a full-throttle fully-improvised musical performed in full by only two men (plus one on guitar). The plots, the tunes, the dance routines; all spontaneous every time! You cannot miss out on this. Do the Thing are Simon Plotkin (Off the Cuff, Gerald Galbraith: Troubadour), Tim Meredith (Blanket Fort, Off the Cuff) and with Iain Scott (Beardog, Off the Cuff) on the guitar.
