Named "Best Sketch Comedy Group" by the Chicago Reader, The Cupid Players present the longest running sketch comedy show in Chicago history, continuing to make audiences laugh until it hurts. Here are the top reasons Cupid in your Pants is a must-see this Valentine's Day:
Humor: Where else can you see an original musical sketch comedy show satirizes falling in love on Valentine's Day?
Music: The Cupid Players serenade audience members with their catchy songs featuring a witty take on relationships, love and life.
Price: Nothing beats the $35 price tag which includes the show, a Goodie "V-Bag" and a champagne toast
No awkward silences: You'll be laughing the entire show so no need to worry about those awkward date-night moments
Cupid Has A Heart On: A Musical Guide to Relationships has been named a "must-see" by Time Out Chicago and feted as "full of wit and zest" by the Chicago Tribune. Backed by a lively pianist, the comic musical performers of The Cupid Players perform songs and scenes developed by the cast under the direction of Posen. The production's sketches combine sharp writing and catchy songs with a witty take on relationships, love and life. The result is a musical sketch show that is raunchy, sweet, cynical, touching, smart, inane and - above all - very, very funny.
