Rave Reviews For The Second City

“The audience LOVED THE SHOW! Everything was great. I would definitely recommend the troupe to others and hope to bring them back again! Cast and crew were great to work with, so personable! The show was hilarious and thought-provoking.”
-Emily Morris, Associate Director of Student Activities, Willamette University

“Working with The Second City…has been a dream. They completely understand our community and have built a show our patrons both identify with and uproariously laugh with. The writers, the cast and everyone involved wants your show to be the best it can be.”
-Kevin Moore, Managing Director, Actors Theatre of Louisville

“Second City was absolutely wonderful! The audience loved them, and we sold out the house. I think many of our audience members were shocked to see a group as prestigious as The Second City in a small town like Yadkinville. It was quality comedy, and the political satire reached both sides of the aisle. To top it all off, the performers and their stage manager were wonderful to work with and genuinely interested in our facility and our people.”
-Lindsay Craven, Director of Performing Arts and Administration, Yadkin Cultural Arts Center

“The Second City Team was thoroughly professional from beginning to end. They were inspired and user-friendly in every way. The show, which received rousing standing ovations nightly, was a critical and box office triumph.”
-Andrew Barnicle, former Artistic Director, Laguna Playhouse
