Baby Wants Candy - 2011 - Off-Broadway

BABY WANTS CANDY begins with the cast asking the audience for a suggestion of a musical that has never been performed before. Accompanied by a full band, the first title that the group hears becomes the title and theme for that evening's 60 minute show. It's a roller coaster ride of spontaneously choreographed dance numbers, rhyming verses, and witty jaw-dropping comedy. Each performance is its own opening and closing night, and by design every show is completely unique and a once-in-a-lifetime premiere.
