This show was hilarious!! What an amazing cast! I took my best friend to see it for his birthday and we had a wonderful time! The live band was a wonderful addition and made some of the scenes! I highly recommend seeing this show.

About the Ticket Supplier: Baby Wants Candy

Baby Wants Candy is a Chicago-based theater group that has amazed audiences around the world with our signature show, a completely improvised hour-long musical.

The Musical has rocked audiences all around the world. Truly every aspect of the musical is improvised: the plot and characters, the musical accompaniment; even the song lyrics and what we like to call the "choreography" are completely made up on the spot, with no pre-planned structure to help us. The result is a show that has been described as a cross between "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" and "The Simpsons." The show is always exciting, hilarious, and above all, fun!
