  Bite Size Broadway at Annoyance Theatre

Bite Size Broadway

Annoyance Theatre
851 W. Belmont Chicago

You've never heard of Andrew Lloyd Webber's relative, Bobby Lloyd Webber, but after this hysterical performance at The Annoyance Theatre in Chicago you'll definitely be a fan. Webber wrote ten musicals while doing hard time in prison -- none of them longer than 15 minutes, none of them shorter than 15 seconds. Now he's debuting them in his self-hosted show, Bite Size Broadway, where six talented actors are bringing these comedic, inventive, never-before-seen productions to life in one spectacular hour of singing, dancing and jazz hands.

Chicago Reader - Somewhat Recommended

"...The pieces, even the songs, were written by an ensemble of trained improvisers (David Yontz is credited in the program for "original music direction," though Heidi Joosten is the show's current music director)—and it shows. The minimusicals all have a shallow improv feel to them, though they lack the spontaneity and joy of discovery of pure improv. The show is well paced, though, and is crisply directed (by Charley Carroll) and packed with lots of well executed dance numbers. But ultimately there is no "there there" here."
