The hit musical comedy returns to The Living Room for a four week run! This audience favorite has been expanded and revamped with new scenes, new music, and some spectacular new faces.

Set in the early 20th century during the decline of vaudeville and the rise of Hollywood, The Ballad of Lefty & Crabbe tracks the journey of an ultra-sharp but down-on-their-luck comedy duo as they navigate the rapidly changing world of entertainment.

This witty and gleefully ridiculous musical comedy (from the team that brought you Milking Christmas) won a Best of Fringe designation in 2015, packed houses in its 2017 run, and last year won several awards including Best of the Fest at the Chicago Musical Theatre Festival!

Bless This Mess: A Sketch Comedy Show

Due to some performance schedule conflicts, I wasn’t able to be in the cast for this show - but I did join the team as a writer and…sorta…director…ish. Anyway, it features maybe my favorite sketch from any show I’ve ever done ever, so you should come see it. Three performances only!

—————————————————————————————————————

Put on your Sunday best and come down to Judy’s Beat Lounge for a church lock-in with Bless This Mess! Bless This Mess is a show that's open to everyone, so come as you are, ready to laugh. If you grew up in the church, have driven past a pun-filled church sign, or even watched "7th Heaven" once, you're invited to see this irreverent (see what we did there) take on Christian pop culture.

Bless This Mess - March 31, April 7 & 14 at 6PM in Judy's Beat Lounge at The Second City, Chicago

WRITTEN and PERFORMED by:
Annie Jackson
James Pomeroy
Matt VanEpps
Michelle Leatherby
