MacGyver The Musical

Did you ever dream of being MacGyver?

Well, here’s your chance. Because in every performance of the new MacGyver musical, we cast the role of Mac right out of the audience! – For real.

So, why turn MacGyver into a musical?

Well, MacGyver was one of those TV shows that the whole family could watch together. And we thought it would be a blast to re-create that experience as a live production with the added fun of tossing in some singing and dancing. But, to make sure it was worthy of the name MacGyver, we decided to kick it up a notch. So, before every show, we ask for volunteers from the audience, hold a brief audition, and then, with their applause, let everyone decide who will play the lead that night and, well, MacGyver their way through it all! What could be more Mac than that? And we guarantee you won’t believe it until you see it—or get to play the lead!

World Premiere

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.

The Album

To give you a taste of what the musical sounds like, we’ve recorded a concept album of all the songs in the show, with a few surprises! The album is available at Broadway Records and Amazon.

Album Contest

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.
