Now Playing Onstage in Boise - Week of 1/05/2014 SECOND CITY
Company of Fools at the Liberty Theatre
1/9-1/10/2014
Back by popular demand (because they always sell out!), Chicago's legendary comedy theatre company The Second City returns to the Liberty Theatre in Hailey on Thursday, January 9th and Friday, January 10th at 7pm. Drawing on classic material from The Second City archives as well as scenes ripped from the morning headlines, The Second City's Happily Ever Laughter is your chance to see comedy stars in the making in an evening of smart, cutting edge comedy. As always, The Second City on Tour features the next generation of comic greats performing a diverse array of sketches and songs, as well as off-the-cuff improvisation that can provide completely unexpected comic brilliance. From the battle of the sexes to the battles at the voting booth, The Second City provides a hilarious and insightful look into contemporary American culture. It all started in a converted Chinese laundry on Chicago's north side in 1959. No one could have known that by the next century, The Second City would have established itself as the premier comedy institution in the world. With theatres in Chicago, Toronto, Detroit, and Las Vegas; training centers in each of those cities as well as Los Angeles; a corporate division that offers creative services to the business world; a TV and film division; and touring troupes that bring its unique brand of improv-based sketch comedy all over the world, The Second City has become, in the words of The New York Times, "A Comedy Empire." The touring troupes at The Second City have been the springboard for generations of the comedy world's best and brightest. Its alumni list includes: Alan Arkin, Joan Rivers, Robert Klein, Peter Boyle, Harold Ramis, John Belushi, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Gilda Radner, John Candy, Martin Short, George Wendt, Julia Louis Dreyfus, Chris Farley, Ryan Stiles, Mike Myers, Rachel Dratch, Tina Fey, and more. No topic or subject matter is off-limits for The Second City. If your parents asked you not to speak about it at the dinner table, chances are, it will be made fun of in an evening with The Second City.

The Golden Dragon Acrobats hail from Cangzhou, Hebei province, in the People's Republic of China and have toured the United States continuously since 1978.

Cirque Ziva is the latest of these shows, created in 2011 by AAPI in coordination with renowned lighting director Tony Tucci (American Ballet Theatre's Configurations with Mikhail Baryshnikov; Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre; 1996 Summer Olympics Cultural Olympiad).

Boise Little Theater

LAKE CITY PLAYHOUSE
1/10-2/1/2014
Based on Louisa May Alcott's own family experiences (and novel), LITTLE WOMEN, follows the adventures of Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March as they grow up in Civil War America. The beloved story of the March sisters is timeless and deals with issues as relevant today as when they were written. Now, this wonderful narrative has been brought to life as an exhilarating new musical filled with glorious music, dancing and heart. LITTLE WOMEN embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears, and a lifting of the spirit. This powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope -- the sounds of a young America finding its voice. In years to come, we are sure that hundreds of productions by schools and theatres throughout the world will make this stage adaptation of the American classic novel a classic musical theatre treasure in its own right.
