The fine folks over at the Chopschticks Comedy Tour have two tickets for one lucky Shanghaiist reader to see the Chicago Improv All-Stars performance Thursday at Henry’s Brewery and Grill. The Chicago Improv All-Stars, also known as Baby Wants Candy, describe their show thusly over on their MySpace page:
Baby Wants Candy, the worlds premiere musical improvisation theater group has entered its 10th year of open run in Chicago. BWC asks the audience for a suggestion of a musical that has never been performed before. The first title they hear then becomes the basis and title for that 60 minute one act musical. Using this format BWC has performed over 1,400 different musicals. Founded in Chicago, BWC has performed completely improvised musicals to sold-out crowds from Singapore to Edinburgh.
BWC has received rave reviews the world over and if you look at their cast page, you just might see some names you recognize.
The video to the right is a BWC sample reel from early 2006. And we also found some BWC photos at Flickr.
Tickets are RMB 220 in advance (today is the last day) and RMB 280 at the door. We are giving away two tickets for Thursday’s show to one winner.
