23 Days of Flatiron Cheer- Musical Improv

23 Days of Flatiron Cheer- Musical Improv

On my way to the train station last Friday, I saw a small group of people starting to gather around a small stage. I decided to go take a look at what was happening and realized that a group of people was singing. As I got closer I realized they were singing about Xbox One, which surprised me so I decided to stay to listen to the full song.

Because I didn’t see any signs around, except one that said “23 Days of Flatiron Cheer,” I didn’t really know what I was watching, except a group of people singing. However, after I went home, I searched for it and learned that what I watched was a musical improv performed by the People’s Improv Theater (the PIT), which is located right on 24th Street! While I heard of improv comedy shows, I have never heard of musical improv before. This amazed me because it didn’t sound like improvisation to me at all.


This event is part of the 23 Days of Flatiron Cheer, an annual holiday celebration that brings 23 days of holiday-themed events to the Flatiron neighborhood. There are live performances, art displays, kids story time, fun traditions like the “ugly sweater” contest, and more. This event goes on until December 24th, so you should definitely stop by if you have time after class!
