The world premiere of Mad Libs Live!, a new musical inspired by the ultimate fill-in-the-blanks time passer, will played New World Stages from Nov 2015 - Jan 2016. The interactive show featured music by Jeff Thomson and a book and lyrics by Robin Rothstein—with audiences offering their own suggestions here and there.
