Watch a 60 minute improvised musical that has never been performed and never will be performed again
BABY WANTS CANDY begins with the cast asking the audience for a suggestion of a musical that has never been performed before. The first title that the group hears becomes the title and theme for that evening’s 60 minute show. Each performance is it’s own opening and closing night, and by design every show is completely unique and a once-in-a-lifetime premiere.
BABY WANTS CANDY has performed over 1,800 completely improvised musicals to thousands of fans from New York to Singapore to Scotland. The production has just returned from a smash hit engagement at the Assembly at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Leicester Square Theatre in London. Currently Baby Wants Candy is running in Chicago at the Apollo Theater and touring.
Musical Director: Dan Wessels
