About The Festival

Hello and welcome to The 7th Annual New York Musical Improv Festival!

The NYMIF’s mission is to elevate and celebrate the community of improvisors, actors, singers, and musicians who gather in NYC once a year to meet, perform and show off the form!

Past festivals have included teams and performers from NYC, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, Boston, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Austin TX, Washington DC, Raleigh NC, and has featured everything from an improvised rock concert to a fully costumed Dickensian musical, improvised hip-hop, college teams, duo and solo shows, improvised Sondheim and even the cast and band from Broadway’s “Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson.”

Submissions for NYMIF 2015 are now closed!  We received a record-breaking number of submissions from teams all across North America!

All applications will be carefully reviewed by members of the NYMIF team and offers will be emailed to performers on or around the week of July 6, 2015. 

Thank you to everyone who submitted to The 7th Annual New York Musical Improv Festival.  We’re looking forward to another stellar year of celebrating and showcasing the art of musical improv!
