The Second City e.t.c’s 40th Revue: A Red Line Runs Through It



A Red Line Runs Through It rides the rails of Chicago in order to answer life’s tough questions. How does the past sculpt the future? Are we all guided by anger? In this ever-changing landscape of nostalgia and uncertainty sometimes we need a brunch with friends to sort it all out. Who will snap first? No one knows what tomorrow will bring and the only thing that is certain is that this train keeps moving. This diverse cast of comedians will take you on their own ride exploring the new mother blues, black girl magic, and salacious local news.  This non-stop locomotive launches from north to south along a transit line of pure comic bliss.

Thursday – Sunday nights and evenings.
