From Our Editors
Baby Wants Candy is an improv musical of the highest tier. Actors are left to hilariously string together lines of a musical that’s never been performed the night before it actually goes on. The theme of this musical? Whatever the audience shouts loudest and with the most gusto. Improv theater is hard enough to get right without being tacky, but musical improv? That takes a flourish of true artistry that very few people have. Luckily, the Baby Wants Candy Chicago cast can count themselves among these people, as audiences are often left out of breath from laughter after their performances. It’s a refreshingly human experience that breathes new life into the time-old tradition of live acting.
