Chicago's The Second City in Tecumseh
Let someone else face your small talk fears head-on! Instead of avoiding Grandpa and de-friending your old high school pals, see The Second City’s brand-new sketch comedy and improv revue, LOOK BOTH WAYS BEFORE TALKING
The Second City opened its doors on a snowy Chicago night in December of 1959. No one could have guessed that this small cabaret theatre would become the most influential and prolific comedy theatre in the world. With its roots in the improvisational games of Viola Spolin, The Second City developed an entirely unique way of creating and performing comedy. Founded by Spolin’s son, Paul Sills, along with Howard Alk and Bernie Sahlins, The Second City was experimental and unconventional in its approach to both theatre and comedy. At a time when mother-in-law jokes were more the fashion, The Second City railed against the conformist culture with scenes that spoke to a younger generation.
Tecumseh Center for the Arts is thrilled to jump start the New Year with The Second City on January 20, 2018. The touring group will present its newest show LOOK BOTH WAYS BEFORE TALKING. The Chicago based touring company will feature Alison Banowsky, E.J. Cameron, Mark Campbell, Saurabh Pande, Amy Thompson, Fernando Alvarez (Stage Manager), Jeff Strickland (Music Director) and Jeff Griggs (Director-At-Large).
