"Fake job titles, fame-seeking contestants, gratuitous shower scenes and the consistent lack of racial diversity are just a handful of the show’s signature components skewered during the show."
The Hollywood Reporter
"Exceedingly clever, legitimately funny, and far wittier than the ABC series itself. This show earns my rose."
"You'll have fun."
The Chicago Tribune
About the Show
Bachelor: The Unauthorized Parody Musical is the most dramatic musical of The Bachelor yet! With songs like "Sob Story," "Two-On-One Tango," and "The Date Card is a Riddle," this uproarious parody is packed with romance, competition, and contestants who may or may not be here for The Right Reasons.
Created by Upright Citizen's Brigade alumn and Bachelor podcaster Richelle Meiss with music by the hilarious team of Sam & Tony, composers of The Second City hit musicals Trump in Space and Supportive White Parents, Bachelor the Musical ran for sold-out crowds in LA before coming exclusively to the Apollo Theater Chicago.
Whether you love The Bachelor, only watch The Bachelor with your girlfriend, or have never seen The Bachelor, get ready to fall in love with this musical. Who will get the final rose? Who will go home heartbroken? And how many Bachelor jokes can they cram into a 90-minute musical? You’ll just have to come pick up your rose and find out!
*This show is not affiliated in any way with The Bachelor. This is an unauthorized parody musical.
