It’s about damn time. Together at Last is a non-stop celebration of how we have persisted and even thrived during these impossibly difficult times. From laughing at the sheer absurdity of our current reality to cheering for our tiny wins, nothing is off-limits: family dynamics, marriage & divorce, girls’ nights out, working from home, and readjusting to society at large. Come laugh at what unites us all in a show that asks the question… is anyone out there going to save us?
Come and celebrate the holidays at The Second City, made-for-cable movie-style.

It's all your favorite holiday "classics" in one place, trope'd out and presented by a cast fit for the 21st Century. Join us for a holiday treat that everyone will enjoy!

Nevertheless persisting--one last time! After rave reviews and extended engagements in Chicago, Toronto, and Washington, D.C. the award-winning production returns for its FINAL run. Created and performed by the fearlessly funny women of The Second City, this high-octane show satirizes the complexities of identifying as female in this wild world while roasting the patriarchy with scorching sketch comedy, hilarious original songs, and whip-smart improv. Don’t miss your last chance to witness the Revue (Not "revolution" bc it sounds like we are giving up on the cause) that the Chicago Tribune calls “empowering entertainment”, the Chicago Sun-Times calls "One of the funniest revues Second City has produced in the past 20 Years" and NOW Toronto deems “an essential show.”
The Second City has no time for regrets in the 45th e.t.c. revue, The Best Decision You've Ever Made. This choose-your-own comedy adventure explores the choices we make and how they impact us and everyone around us in a hilarious, heartfelt, and interactive way. Make a great decision and come experience this show, where you're an essential part of the fun! No two performances are ever the same...unless the existential rumors are true and we're all trapped on a cosmic hamster wheel.
