About The Idea

A few years ago, the three of us were brainstorming ideas after a long tech rehearsal. What should we do for our next project? Should we write a musical about something ridiculous? A sketch show of original works? A weekly cabaret???

We combined all of those ideas into one epic project: a weekly cabaret of short, original and zany musicals based on terrible premises. It was an exciting idea; however, living in 3 different cities we quickly realized we lacked the logistics, means or time to do it.

Fast forward three years. Now older, wiser and conveniently living in the same zip code, we’ve developed the initial idea into World’s Worst Musical - a 10 episode musical webseries! As a writer watches his bad ideas come to life through song and dance, he discovers how great things can spring from even the worst ideas.
