Critics' Choice "A magic informs Baby Wants Candy." " The troupe has become the very model of smart, physical, quick-thinking, and just plain silly long-form improvisers" "Baby's nine bright, energetic, seasoned performers don't sing out of desperation but becasue that's what they do--create fully improvised one-act musicals. Singing is their raison d'etre, and they do it well."..."The cast supports one another fully in everything, validating James Joye's remark that genius makes no mistakes--errors are the portals of discovery." - Jack Helbig


- Chicago Reader


Baby Wants Candy make the Improvised Musical work. BWC spin a full hour-long rock opera from one audience suggestion... The show is always exciting-kind of like being strapped into a careening car that might flip over at any given moment.
-Onion AV Club - The Onion

WHAT IS A BABY WANTS CANDY SHOW?
The audience shouts out a title of a musical that has never been performed before. Accompanied by a piano player or full band, Baby Wants Candy takes that title and creates a 60 minute musical on the spot.

Baby Wants Candy has won praise around the world including Ensemble of the Year at the acclaimed Chicago Improv Festival.

Baby Wants Candy has performed completely improvised musicals to sold-out crowds from Singapore to Edinburgh. BWC consistently provides audiences with some of the funniest and smartest improvisation around.

Jack Helbig, of the Chicago Reader, praises The Improvised Rock Opera by Baby Wants Candy, shows that the group has become the very model of smart, physical, quick-thinking, and just plain silly long-form improvisation. Edinburghs The Scotsman raves Chicagos Baby Wants Candy could convert the most cynical enemy of musicals with their improvised version, which combines creative wit with awesome performances. They are an entertainment phenomenon and I am in awe of their talent. You cannot fail to have your world rocked by these people. I have one word for it: Go! and TimeOutNY awarded BWC Best Visiting Comedy Show asking readers Dont like musical improv? Neither did we until we saw this truly outstanding Chicago troupe.
