Baxter Productions, Inc presents a new musical based on the most popular word game of all time.

... Read more

The story begins at the finals of Teen Superstars, the live TV show that will determine the most popular singing group at Blankville Central High.
Virtuosa, Gogo, Geyser, and Merrily seem to have nothing in common – until just before airtime, when they realize that their songs are missing words! In the spirit of the 'World's Greatest Word Game,' the gang fills in the blanks with words from the audience! This truly interactive musical changes at every performance.

The New York Times

"Playing Mad Libs, the fill-in-the-blank word game, always has been license to go a little lowbrow. Given the chance to name a person, place or thing will you resist the impulse to sink to the level of a giggly second grader? Not that you should, necessarily. Especially if you are a giggly second grader, in which case this show, for children 7 and up, is aimed straight at you...The show feels both overly cautious and a little cynical, with music and lyrics that are largely pallid and anodyne."

Theatre is Easy

"A hilarious whirlwind of silly, bizarre, ridiculously laugh-out-loud songs—just as what you would expect when you played Mad Libs as a child. Except this time, Robin Rothstein and Jeff Thomson have created a musical where the actors pick out (and act out) the randomly chosen words, live...I recommend this fun, goofy, interactive musical for the whole family, especially for children over the age of 7."

Emma Westchester - Moms Like Us

"It’s an Off-Broadway Musical that brings the word game to life in this hilarious new show that is perfect for the whole family…Once the show began, it became very clear that these young actors were not only talented musical theater performers but also talented improvisational actors. The way the actors seamlessly incorporated the audience provided words throughout the show was literally laugh out loud hilarious." Full Review
