Urban Improv celebrates the 20th anniversary of Banned in Boston, a madcap musical revue that raises funds for interactive drama programs to help young people in Boston explore the challenging situations they face in their daily lives.
Banned in Boston '15 - The Boston Survival Guide offers downright useless tips for surviving life in the Hub. The event will honor Patrick Lyons of The Lyons Group, a supporter of the event since its inception. Hosted by Matt Siegel of Kiss 108, the cast features some of the region's leading media, business, non-profit and political leaders, all who put aside dignity and pride to help raise money for Urban Improv.
