Playing It By Ear is the first run of WIT’s 25th Anniversary season! This music-themed performance series kicks off our residency at Studio Theatre and features our long-running musical ensemble iMusical (called “spot on” by The Washington Post).

The run also features performances by our family of company of ensembles who will use audience inputs like lyrics and song titles to inspire the show. Each night features a different line-up and no two shows are the same (even remotely!).

Michael Broyles

Michael has lived in Washington for six years and plays in a folk punk duo named Reach Row Throw Go!. He is a Virginia-bred cartoonist & labor organizer. His enthusiasm for improv knows no bounds apart from his personal schedule, and always loves everything WIT puts on. He is NOT a hundreds-year old wizard who will grant you one wish if you can answer his three riddles, so we request that you please stop asking him things like “quiz me your riddles, o’ mighty wizard”.
