Baby Wants Candy: The Completely Improvised Full Band Musical (Baby Wants Candy)

By | Published on Friday 16 August 2019

Baby Wants Candy are a group of American improvisers, who take to the stage to create a brand-new musical every night. With the help of the incredibly talented Yes Band, the six cast members take audience suggestions for a show title before embarking on an hour-long adventure. The night I attended we were treated to ‘Orange Is The New Crack’, which evolved into a hilarious hour of entertainment; notably the physical comedy from the three male actors was on point, with choreography improvised alongside the musical numbers. The talent of the band, quick-wittedness of the ensemble, and their willingness to go along with anything culminated in a literal once in a lifetime experience.

Assembly George Square, until 25 Aug.
