New York improv team: Petting Zoo

An improvised musical theater group for the touchy-feely, Petting Zoo couldn't get enough of each other when we got together and started performing almost weekly, almost right away. A troupe full of juicy, bubbly, high-energy people, each show is a love letter to musical improv, to each other and to our audiences. Although you don't need to be a great singer to do musical improv, we're blessed to have a team full of distinct voices with a strong sense of musicality, which has lent itself, lately, not just to musical improv, but operatic improv - where we sing every line of our scenes, and launch from each scene into a full-fledged song when the scene is ripe.
