The Musical Improv Jam invites all players to fill the room with theatrical joy. Players begin with an improvised scene that then heightens into a spontaneous, emotional, hilarious song. Newcomers to musical improv get a chance to perform with veterans who lift them up and show them why this art form is the most fun a person can have. Veterans get the chance to support those new players, get reps, and discover new connections within this amazing community. Like all improv, musical improv is founded on commitment, listening, and support; whether you can keep up with the likes of Julie Andrews or struggle to sing a solitary note, this is the perfect opportunity to follow the fear and find your voice.

 

Hosted by Maria Schroeder and PJ Nally
Accompanied by James Naven

PJ Nally (he/him) firmly believes that musical improv is the most fun a person can have. Making excellent use of his Master’s in Economic Policy, he improvises six days a week. He hosts the PIT’s Musical Improv Jam every Monday night and performs regularly with Hell Yeah!, the Vespa Incident, and many other shows with his beloved PIT and Magnet communities. PJ is madly in love with Maria Schroeder and is known to kiss her often and passionately both on and off stage.

Maria Schroeder (she/her) has a BFA in Musical Theatre from Missouri State University and is happy to be putting it to such good use. Outside of co-hosting the PIT Musical Improv Jam, you can catch her improvising with Hell Yeah!, The Vespa Incident, and in various shows throughout the PIT and Magnet communities. Other interests include PJ Nally, reading books she has already read, PJ Nally, finding New York City’s best bagel, PJ Nally, doing the New York Times crossword, PJ Nally, talking about Musical Theatre history, PJ Nally, Gilded Age Architecture, and PJ Nally.

James Navan is a pianist, singer, actor and improviser. As a musician, James holds an M.M. in jazz piano from Queens College, has toured the world with groups such as The Glenn Miller Orchestra, and also has performed at many of NYC’s finest jazz clubs.

As you may have heard though, musicians tend to take things way too darn seriously, so he’s really glad to have gotten into improv over the past few years. And now, he’s finding it hard to not take improv too seriously. Stop it, James! In particular, James really gets a kick out of musical improv, both as a pianist and improviser, and you can usually catch him accompanying the PIT’s musical improv jam every Monday night.
