Off-Broadway’s only improvised pirate musical – “The Greatest Pirate Story Never Told” – will be performed at Gesa Power House Theatre on Friday, January 20 at 7:00 p.m.
Think “Pirates of the Caribbean” meets “Whose Line is it Anyway?” – with a splash of “Monty Python”, “Gilbert & Sullivan” and “Mad Libs” tossed into the mix!
The Plot: Flung into the future by a musical-loving Sea Witch, a crew of misfit pirates-turned-actors must now perform the greatest pirate epic ever seen on stage! But when their script is partially obscured by a tragic squid ink accident, the crew must turn to the audience to fill in the missing bits of the plot. Cast members improvise their musical adventure, seamlessly weaving the audience suggestions into scenes, songs and more!
Full of swordplay and wordplay with a boatload of laughs for pirates age 4 to 104, this swashbuckling musical is never the same show twice!
“More laughs than there are bones in Davy Jones’s locker!”
–The New York Times
“The Greatest Pirate Story Never Told” was nominated as “Best Family Show 2014” by the Off-Broadway Alliance Awards.
