Been There, Still There

Saturday, May 6, 2017
Second City Main Stage alums Bruce Jarchow (Parks and Recreation / Boss / Seinfeld / Ghost) and Nancy McCabe-Kelly (web series Teachers as seen on the Onion Channel / Welcome! To Prison / TBS Comedy Festival, Just for Laughs) are bringing their highly praised show BEEN THERE, STILL THERE to the Playhouse for ONE NIGHT ONLY.

The show follows a baby boomer couple on a road trip to Wisconsin for a destination wedding. Along the way they ponder empty nest angst, becoming victims of both urban gentrification and illogical technology, and anything else that comes to mind, with the local radio and nostalgia of Wisconsin as their backdrop. Though this is a scripted show, each performance is slightly different as they expound, riff and allow themselves to go off script as the spirit (and audience) moves them.

Tickets $20 Adults, $15 Juniors (under 30)
