The announcement was made by Matt Britten, executive producer; Aaron Price, co-founder and CEO of Livecube; and Shannon O'Neill, artistic director of Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre.
Co-created by Michael Girts, Mike Descoteaux and T.J. Shanoff, Blank! The Musical will utilize a specially designed mobile app, developed in partnership with Livecube, that will allow audience members to direct the action by using their mobile phones.
At Blank! The Musical, press notes state, "the power to build your dream Broadway show is in your hands. Bring your friends, get out your smartphone, and vote with the audience to fill in the blanks. Choose a title. Write lyrics. Compose the score. Then it's curtain time and away we go...watch in awe as actors, musicians, and a Tony Award-winning creative team bring your musical to life on the spot, complete with show-stopping singing, dazzling dancing, and of course, laugh-out-loud comedy."
Casting and creative team members will be announced shortly.
The production is presented in partnership with Upright Citizens Brigade, Boston-area comedy theatre and school ImprovBoston, and other comedy partners from around the country to be announced. For more information visit BlankTheMusical.com.
