Chicago's Second City Comes to Trinity Rep in March

Chicago's legendary sketch comedy theater, The Second City: Laughing Matters will bring their unique brand of humor to the Trinity Rep stage from March 20-23 at 7:30pm featuring some of the best sketches, songs, and improvisations from The Second City's fifty-two year history. The Second City is truly a Chicago landmark and a National Treasure.

With economic uncertainty, political gridlock and a dearth of Kardashians clogging up our televisions, laughing has never mattered more and The Second City is here to bring some well needed silliness and hilarious spontaneity to a world in need of some comic relief. The Second City: Laughing Matters puts comedy first in a wickedly funny revue that skewers and celebrates in equal doses.

The Second City celebrates over 50 years of cutting edge satiric revues and continues to deliver the leading voices in comedy while touring the globe. With scripted and improvisational elements, audiences always enjoy being part of the show and playing along with the next generation of comic legends.

Whether it's ripped from the morning headlines or a classic gem from their 50 year archives, The Second City is always a laugh out loud hit.

Tickets for The Second City are $35 and can be purchased at the Trinity Rep box office, 201 Washington St.; by phone at (401) 351-4242; and online at www.trinityrep.com.
