Musical-comedy improv can evoke intense anxiety for the audience: Not only do you have the basic tension of hoping the improvisers can keep their show flowing harmoniously, you also worry whether they can do so in actual harmony. But from the moment Rebecca Vigil and Evan Kaufman burst onto the (incredibly tiny) stage at Spectrum, you know you're in good hands: You can tell from their infectious, bubbly energy that even if things go off the rails, you’ll all have a fun time crashing. Your Love, Our Musical! begins with the quick-witted and very talented performers asking a couple from the audience how they fell in love. Vigil and Kaufman then pull quirky bits from the couple’s tale to create an on-the-spot musical. On opening night, a 15-minute interview with an overwhelming polite British couple morphed into 45 minutes of entertaining (and technically impressive) songs about walking along the river, playing piano, a long-delayed marriage and, somehow, two secret agents sent to a party to kill the same person. It may not be your love that they render on stage, but by the end of the night, they will definitely earn your laughter.—Will Pulos
