Shark Tank: the Musical

Annoyance Theatre & Bar (Chicago) bring their hit show to Planet Ant

Ever watch the tv show Shark Tank and think, “that show would make a great musical"...?

Well, your friends at The Annoyance did. A great cast of Annoyance regulars play your favorite sharks Mark, Daymond, Kevin, Lori, Barbara, and Robert; along with all kinds of characters and their crazy pitches as they try to land a deal. Come with some good ideas, because you just might find that you’re pitching, too! Never seen the show? You’ll end up a fan!
