The Second City Presents Gaslight District
the Second City e.t.c.’s 42nd Revue
by Annette Dixon
Anneliese Toft, director, has directed her first Second City resident stage production after regularly contributing as a director for the Second City Theatricals.
In the Second City e.t.c.’s 42nd Revue the set designed by Bob Knuth played an important role in comedy. Some of the people in the audience didn’t get the picture of the similarity of the SNL skits with the interaction of opening and closing doors. Humor is derived in many ways other than words only. As the picture above shows facial presence is also important.
On the whole many topics were funny and the audience had a blast. This is the first time I enjoyed a comedy show without having to hear every other word as an offensive word. Great topics and I thoroughly recommend this show.
The cast includes: Emily Fightmaster, Sayjal Joshi, Katie Kershaw, Andrew Knox, Alan Linic, Jasbir Singh Vazquez. Tickets start at $21 and are available at the Second City Box Office 230 W. North Ave. first floor, Piper’s Alley or by phone at 312-337-3992 or online at www.secondcity.com
