The following is from the South Orange Performing Arts Center
On May 12, Chicago’s legendary sketch and improv comedy theater returns to South Orange Performing Arts Center, One SOPAC Way, South Orange, NJ at 8 p.m. with “We’re All In This Room Together.” Full of the live and in-your-face entertainment Netflix can’t provide, this must-attend show features improvised comedy, audience interaction, and of-the-moment sketches and songs from The Second City made famous by superstars like Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray and more. Never the same show twice, join us in the “Room” where it happens during this special one-night engagement.
Fresh, fast and always spectacularly funny, The Second City is celebrating 57 years of producing cutting-edge satirical revues and launching the careers of generation after generation of comedy’s best and brightest.
Founded in 1959 by Bernard Sahlins, Howard Alk, and Paul Sills the Second City was a place for improvisation acting and comedy using newly developed techniques. Since then The Second City has become the premier hotspot for directors, actors, comedians, and others in show business looking to launch their careers. Alumni like John Candy, Dan Aykroyd, Shelley Long and Chris Farley all got their start at The Second City. See the next generation of comic rising stars at SOPAC on May 12.
