Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is the best musical on TV, and now it’s going to be the best musical you can see live. It’s almost like we dreamed this up since it sounds too good to be true, but it’s actually happening: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is going on tour!
The CW’s hit musical comedy is officially going on the road, and this is your chance to see all your favorite songs come to life. Starting on March 31st, series creator and star Rachael Bloom will be joined by cast members and songwriters for an eight-city tour across the country. Each of the eight shows will feature stars Bloom (who plays Rebecca Bunch), Vincent Rodriguez III (Josh Chan), Scott Michael Foster (Nathaniel Plimpton III), and Pete Gardner (Darryl Whitefeather), along with showrunner Aline Brosh McKenna, and songwriters Adam Schlesinger and Jack Dolgen. And while the specific cast lists for each show will vary based on talent availability, each show will feature the very best of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s extensive catalogue, so this will be a once-in-a-lifetime event for superfans.
“There is nothing like performing musical comedy live,” Bloom explained in a press release. “It’s not just a performance, it’s an ongoing dialogue between the performers and the audience. We are so excited to offer new renditions of some of our beloved songs and connect with our amazing fans.”
Over the course of three seasons, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has delivered over 100 original songs tackling real-life topics like mental health, sex, stereotypes and LGBTQ issues, and they manage to do it in subversive and brilliant ways. It’s one of the smartest, most relatable shows on TV, and now is your chance to see the magic live and in person so mark your calendars now because tickets go on sale Wednesday, Feb. 14th at noon.
