Baby Wants Candy! The Original Completely Improvised Musical


“CRITICS’ PICK. TRULY AMAZING!” – New York Times

“BEST VISITING IMPROV COMEDY!”– TimeOut NY

“HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!” – The Onion

★★★★★” THEY ARE AN ENTERTAINMENT PHENOMENON AND I AM IN AWE OF THEIR TALENT!” – The Scotsman

Musical Improv Supergroup Baby Wants Candy is BACK! 
 
Baby Wants Candy is one of the world’s most popular and critically acclaimed comedy ensembles, with casts in NY, Chicago and LA and an international touring company. And after years of sell-out shows, BWC brings its fully improvised full band musical back to The Second City!
 

Baby Wants Candy creates the opening and closing night of a one night only smash-hit musical based on audience suggestions – every single night! 

Witness the plot of Kanye West Side Story –  pulled out of thin air! Behold the beauty of high brow spontaneous theater as the ensemble conjures shows like Mary Poppins Has Ebola, The Dirt Devil Wears Prada, Tinder in the Animal Kingdom, HotUncles.com – or whatever the audience suggests – right in front of your eyes. 

It’s a roller-coaster ride of spontaneously choreographed dance numbers, heartwarming characters, rhyming verses and witty, jaw-dropping comedy.

Baby Wants Candy has help launch the careers of top comedic actors and writers, from Chris Grace (Superstore), Thomas Middleditch (HBO’s Silicon Valley), Jack McBrayer (Kenneth in 30 Rock), Aidy Bryant (Saturday Night Live), Amber Ruffin and Tarik Davis (The Amber Ruffin Show) Craig Cackowski (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Arrested Development), and Peter Gwinn (Colbert Report).
