Broadway's Next Hit Musical usually improvises songs from improvised musicals. But with this series we improvise a song from a Tony-nominated musical, HAMILTON! Matt Giroveanu and Megan Reilly give Lin-Manual Miranda a run for his money. Head to BroadwaysNextHitMusical.com to find out when we'll be performing near you!
This #CutSong is a little different from the others - An American In Paris on Broadway didn't give us the a-okay to use any of the cast in our videos. They probably made the right call on that. Either way, Megan Reilly shines in this song.

Reviews of Megan Reilly in Broadway's Next Hit Musical

But the real star of the show, in my personal opinion, was Megan Reilly. I feel like she was quick on her feet more than the other actors and the spotlight demanded her attention every time she was on stage.

Highlights of the June 2 performance include Megan Reilly, whose gorgeous voice fits her impromptu power ballad like a glove

Reviews of Robert Z Grant in Broadway's Next Hit Musical

Robert Z Grant, who ended up stealing the show with his miming, was probably the quickest of all the cast members and slipped in a handful of memorable one-liners.
— Patrick Hickey, Jr., Reviewfix.com
Robert Z Grant, whose unusually tall stature was alluded to multiple times, employed a comedic, Dick Van Dyke-like movement vocabulary.
