Nicky’s Solo Im­pro­vised Mu­si­cal of­fers a once in a life­time show, ev­ery time.

The Coast - - HALIFAX FRINGE - —ML

“Hav­ing stud­ied mu­si­cal theatre and then im­prov and sketch at Sec­ond City, I cre­ated this show to be able to per­form any time I wanted,” says Nas­ral­lah. “I had worked with some im­prov duos and mu­si­cal im­prov troupes, and there had been a re­cent boom in Toronto of the im­pro­viser go­ing solo. The idea scared the hell out of me, so of course I had to try it.” He will be work­ing along­side the mega-tal­ented lo­cal mu­si­cian Holly Ar­se­nault, who will serve as the mu­si­cal direc­tor and ac­com­pa­nist.

“Each show takes us through an ex­tra­or­di­nary day in the life of an or­di­nary per­son,” says Nas­ral­lah, “which will all be based on ques­tions I ask the au­di­ence at the top of the show. Each show fea­tures about five to seven songs, never be­fore heard, never to be heard again.”

In typ­i­cal Fringe fash­ion, Nas­ral­lah is em­brac­ing the un­cer­tain, singing the whole way through.


A brand-new play, ev­ery time.
