REVIEW: Let Them Eat Chaos @ The Second City

The Smartest Fanciful Production Yet


Let Them Eat Chaos is the best show I’ve ever seen at The Second City. I had high expectations for this show, but boy, I had no idea what I was in for. This show takes you on a whimsical, colorful and satirical adventure through art, technology, war, rap and everlasting love. The entire production is incredible, but hats off to the Director, Matt Hovde, and Musical Director, Julie B. Nichols, as the music and projected scenery add so much context to the show.

This all-star cast delivered beyond expectations. Katie Rich is hilarious and adorable. Holly Laurent is a delight. Tawny Newsome has the most beautiful voice – absolutely gorgeous. Edgar Blackmon lights up the stage. Steve Waltien is a jack-of-all-trades and brings them all to this show. Ross Bryant is smart, patient and grounded and helps lay a solid foundation for this fanciful production. I couldn’t be more proud of this cast – what an incredible ensemble. An insatiable statement about the world. A brilliant performance by all. I am obsessed with this show. Phenomenal.
