iMusical (DC) Directed and created by Travis Charles Ploeger in 2006, iMusical creates musical theater which happens to be improvised. The emphasis is on realistic and sympathetic characters in strange and tense situations, and the aim is to have the audience not only humming songs on the way out the theater, but to have them experience both belly-gusting laughter and tear-jerking gut-punches, all from following the dramatic and comedic journeys of those characters through the show.
The Washington Post calls iMusical “spot on.” The cast has performed to standing ovations in multiple comedy festivals including ones in Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York as well as at venues across the DC area including the Kennedy Center.
Under the direction of Travis Charles Ploeger, former longtime musical director of New York’s renowned Chicago City Limits and founding member of I Eat Pandas with Eliza Skinner and Glennis McMurray, iMusical explores the human condition via song and laughter … as only Washington Improv Theater can!
