Did you ever dream of being MacGyver?
So, why turn MacGyver into a musical?
We had the world premiere for a five-week run in February 2022 at the prestigious Stages Theater in Houston, Texas where we received rave reviews, standing ovations and sell-out crowds for almost every performance, whether our audience Mac was a man, a woman, or whatever gender they chose—because we had them all.
To give you a taste of what the musical sounds like, we’ve just recorded a concept album of all the songs in the show which was just released – Click here for more info!
Have you ever dreamt of being on an official cast recording of a musical with Broadway stars and MacGyver’s own Riley – Tristin Mays?
Just as Macgyver is not like any other action hero, “MacGyver The Musical” is not like any other musical. And in keeping with that spirit, we held a nationwide-search to discover who would sing the title role on the album.
Contestants were first asked to record themselves singing their favorite 80s song. The world cast their votes and selected who would make it to the next round. Finalists competed by singing a duet with Broadway’s Brandon Victor Dixon, who will also be joining them on the album. All final entries were outstanding, but RJ Christian was chosen as the winner. Runner-ups Kimberly Lara and Eboni Muse were given honorable mentions.
Sign up for updates about the album and its release (coming this Fall).
