Boys of Summer is a longform musical improv show from Girls Girls Girls which features a different male improvisor guesting with the troupe in every performance.
This format has had an annual run in July and August since 2006. It was a mainstage show at The Hideout Theatre in 2007, 2008, and 2009. In 2010 and 2011, it ran as a non-mainstage show at the Hideout, on Friday nights. It ran at The Institution Theater in Jul/Aug 2012, Jul/Aug 2013, Jul/Aug 2014, and July/Aug 2015. Another run is scheduled for 2016.
